SGIA’s Apparel Luncheon focuses on the importance of corporate culture and employee engagement

Fairfax, Va. — Brian Adam, President and Owner of Olympus Group, will address the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association’s (SGIA) Apparel Decorators Luncheon October 23 at PRINTING United (Dallas, October 23 - 25, 2019). The luncheon takes place from 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM.

SGIA’s Apparel Decorator Committee has asked Adam, an expert on employee engagement who also spoke at THREADX 19, to cover the topic further.

“Apparel decorators want to know how to make their shops thrive,” said Christina Rosado, Community Development Manager, SGIA. “Employee engagement — getting people to really care about what they’re doing — is key to achieving this goal.”

“What if I told you that you could have higher performance, lower turnover, better teamwork and more profits, and it would not cost you a dime? … Yet, this is not only possible, but something all of us can do by engaging employees and developing a great corporate culture,” Adam said in “The Impact of Company Culture on Performance,” which appeared in the SGIA Journal, July/August 2018.

He’s a particularly reliable source: Adam has been recognized by Glassdoor as one of the top 25 CEOs to work for in the United States. During this engaging networking luncheon, he’ll share a collection of engagement-boosting practices, starting with, “Create a noble mission,” and other easy-to-implement tips.
