Make Gratitude Your Business: How The Container Store shows gratitude to its people, its customers, and its communities.

You may already know that research clearly shows that gratitude makes people happier; but did you know that it will also make YOU a better leader?

As we enter the holiday season, Kymm Nelsen, Co-founder of Conscious Capitalism Portland, will open the evening with an interactive session on gratitude at work. Kymm will be followed by Dan Lerma, the General Manager of The Container Store in Portland, who will share his story how The Container Store shows the love to its employees, customers, and communities.

Join us for an opportunity to hear from a Portland leader in a company that is one of the founders of the International Conscious Capitalism Movement. The Container Store has been on the FORTUNE list of 100 Best Companies to Work For for 19 years in a row! They’ve also achieved top placements on other Fortune workplace lists, including the Best Workplaces in RetailBest Workplaces for WomenBest Workplaces for Diversity, and People Companies That Care.

Just as a fun taster, here is a video that shows the senior leadership team of the Container Store thanking their colleagues and employees across the company on their annual “We Love Our Employees Day.”

Don’t miss the chance to be with your tribe on Wednesday, November 28th! We look forward to showing our gratitude to you, our community, and celebrating the holidays with you.
