With every new beginning comes change. Start the New Year with empowering words backed by business advice from Joe Cirulli, CEO and founder of Gainesville Health and Fitness. Joe is the featured guest speaker for Company Lifestyle Session Three: How to Build the Health of Your Company on Friday, January 10, from 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. at 300 East University Ave. Suite 100. FloridaWorks, in collaboration with the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, is hosting the Company Lifestyle series for employers to increase employee recruitment and retention efforts.
Joe Cirulli has lived through it all, from living in his car and abandoned buildings to working for multiple companies that went bankrupt. However, he overcame adversity with optimism. At age 24 with only $1,700 he started a business; today Gainesville Health and Fitness is one of the more well-known health clubs in the world. This Friday Joe will share what he learned about human potential, how he applied it to life and business and how you can do the same. He will also discuss the power of focusing an entire organization, finding people who fit your company's culture, developing reward systems to inspire people and creating an enduring brand. Joe has dedicated his life to two things: helping people become healthy and building a company culture that inspires people to perform their best.
This event is part of Company Lifestyle, a series of workshops for employers to discuss strategies to enhance company culture, address issues in the workplace and establish a network of support. Business owners interested in learning from other companies with successful corporate cultures are invited to attend.
Stay on the lookout for the next Company Lifestyle event in February to conclude the series.
