What it means to have a good workplace culture

A Deeper Dive: James Pogue, a leadership and diversity consultant, joins the podcast to talk about what it means for companies to have a more inclusive culture.

This edition of A Deeper Dive is brought to you by James Pogue Enterprises.


Everybody talks about having a good corporate culture. But what does that mean?

This week’s episode of the Restaurant Business podcast A Deeper Dive features James Pogue, the CEO of the leadership consulting firm JP Enterprises, to talk about culture and inclusivity.

Pogue is a former researcher and administrator who now works with companies—including many restaurants—to help them attract and retain younger employees.

We speak with him because we’re curious about what it means to have a good corporate culture, one that promotes inclusivity and diversity. Pogue is as good as anybody to talk about that topic.

He quickly notes in the podcast that a company has a culture whether it tries to have one or not. And he talks about how to promote that culture—particularly in a time when so many things are so divisive. He talks extensively about promoting an open and honest culture at a time when political divisions are raging.
