UPCOMING EVENTS:  Sparks ‘n Sips, Partner Events  and CSR Roundtables 

B:CIVIC Sparks ‘n Sips    
Building and Communicating Your Brand and Employee Engagement

You probably appreciate that Vail Resorts is an admired place to work and maybe you know that Smartwool has an enthusiastic. But did you know that the branding, communication and employee engagement these companies create plays a key role in their success?

A Cone Communications Employee Engagement Study reports that companies are increasingly being expected to allow their employees to bring their passions for social and environmental issues to the workplace. What does this mean for your organization’s brand and what you want to be known for, how you communicate that brand, and how that ties into employee and community engagement?

Join us for Sparks ‘n Sips on April 20th to hear speakers from two successful and forward-thinking companies with experience in this arena. The program will feature Meredith Mirrington, Director of Culture and Communications, Vail Resorts and Molly Cuffe, Director of Global Communications, Smartwool, who will share their experience, stories, and examples of effective branding and communications to build employee engagement. After the program, participants are invited to network and enjoy refreshments graciously provided by B:CIVIC member and event host, Vail Resorts.
