On February 16, 2021, Intellias, a technology partner of Fortune 500 enterprises and top-tier organizations, hosts the webinar for executives entitled “Creating a Culture of Success: A Forbes-Ranked, People-First Organization.” Participants are invited to register on the official event webpage to attend the insight-packed stream or access the record when the webinar is aired.
Vitaly Sedler, CEO and co-founder of Intellias, President of the IT Ukraine Association, together with Greg Hanifee, Associate Dean, Degree Programs and Operations for the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, join the webinar to discuss the connection between a trusting workplace culture and business success. The event is moderated by Michael Labate, President of North America Region at Intellias.
The webinar will explore why and how culture-driven organizations gain a competitive edge. The panel program will equip founders, C-level and VP-level executives, presidents, and managing directors with an understanding of how to build corporate trust that would set their companies up for success in the vibrant market.
Prioritizing corporate values — not focusing on results — helps business leaders build an unshakeable organization. The webinar’s keynote speaker Vitaly Sedler knows that firsthand as the co-founder and CEO of Intellias, the company with a global customer base and a double-digit CAGR over the past four years.
Intellias has become one of the 15 largest IT services companies in Ukraine with Mr. Sedler at the helm. Having cultivated a people-first paradigm over the past 19 years, the company now counts more than 1,500 in-house employees spanning 10 locations across North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Vitaly Sedler has set the tone for transparent and respectful team environments that foster continuous growth, attracting and retaining the brightest minds. The company’s employees are paying back with loyalty and high ratings — Intellias has been recently recognized by Forbes as the #1 employer in Ukraine for IT services and #5 across industries.
At the webinar, Vitaly Sedler will share his best practices on establishing the corporate culture of success. The attendees will also hear from Greg Hanifee, who oversees the portfolio of degree programs, student life operations, admissions, global program offerings, career management, and academic experience as the Kellogg’s Associate Dean. Helping seasoned managers become empathetic leaders, Mr. Hanifee encourages them to create environments for employees to thrive in and understand that the higher they think, the more opportunities they get.
I think my philosophy working with students is that you’ve got to create a house where people feel valued, where they feel that they’re there with their whole worth. And if you can do that, then other potential students are going to be attracted to it as well. Because there will be this viral effect of “If I feel comfortable where I am, and I can be myself, and I feel like it’s an inclusive environment where I can thrive…” That’s what we need at Kellogg. That’s what every institution should strive for.
