Chamber Cafe Tuesday to focus on workplace culture

The Chamber of Manitowoc County will host a Chamber Cafe, "Workplace Culture: How Do We Do Things Around Here?" presented by Rick Balzan from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday at The Chamber of Manitowoc County, 1515 Memorial Drive.

A workplace culture refers to a company's internal work climate as shaped by a system of shared values, beliefs, ethical standards, and traditions that define behavioral norms, ingrained attitudes, accepted work practices, and styles of operating. This presentation will explore how leaders within their organizations make it all work for current and future employees.

Balzan is the owner of Balzan HR with extensive involvement in the management of human resources. His professional career includes work at both small and large companies in a diversity of industries, such as service, manufacturing and healthcare. He is an experienced educator, teaching for Silver Lake College of the Holy, as well as outreach programs at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee and Lakeshore Technical College.

The event is free for Chamber members, Sail members, and their employees and $25 per person for non-Chamber members and non-Sail members. To register, or for more information, contact The Chamber, (920) 684-5575 or info@chambermanitowoccounty.org.

"Every chef's dream is to do what you want with a place and menu ... I have a really solid team including my brother, Adam Songetay, who is our purchaser," Songetay said.
