IADS Exclusive - Innovative Thinking Series: former Co-CEO of Whole Foods, Walter Robb, shares lessons learned
In a post-pandemic world, crafting an inclusive culture able at the same time to bond together employees and act as an element of motivation and pride is more important than ever, especially now that retail companies start to feel the pinch when it comes to attracting new talents. The IADS had the privilege to listen to Walter Robb, the former Co-CEO of Whole Foods Market, during the World Retail Congress in April 2022, on the topic of “conscious capitalism” and how, when properly implemented, it could help fuel growth for the company by creating an adequate corporate culture. This is the reason why we invited him to share his thoughts and vision when it comes to leading with a purpose, as well as to share the lessons he learnt during his 26-years-long tenure within the company.
IADS provides its members with a weekly in-depth analysis on retail-oriented topics. This is an example of the themes the Association regularly addresses, and the topic of an article from the IADS members-only newsletter date 19 October 2022.
