Why You Should Invest More in People: Take It from Chipotle’s CPO
Tuesday 06/30/2020 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM Add to calendar

Engaged employees, solid retention rates and a full pipeline of prospects have one thing in common: they are a result of companies investing in their people. Organizations that prioritize human capital reap the benefits in more way than one. Chipotle is quite familiar with this approach. Priding itself on building a world-class people company, Chipotle is duly one of the fastest growing fast-causal restaurant chains. If you ask their first-ever Chief People Officer, Marissa Andrada, she attributes the success to the mantra of “you can’t grow a company without growing it’s people.” Marissa, a seasoned HR leader with a career spanning many well-known brands, has been instrumental in redefining Chipotle’s benefits. Under Marissa’s leadership, Chipotle has introduced an all-crew bonus option, the opportunity earn a debt-free college degree, and increased access to mental health care for their 83,000+ employees. Join us for this transformative session as Marissa shares an inside look at how and what Chipotle has done to grow their workforce, transform and create a work environment where the organization’s employees can truly thrive. Take away unique approaches to compensation and benefits, learn how you can apply similar tools they’ve instituted to support these measures, and gain a deep understanding of the impact said initiatives have on business to up your own skills.
