Talent Management Truths
Entrepreneurial Culture by Design with Casey Oware
Show Notes

“If you continue to always look at it like a start-up, you are always growing to be better.”
-Casey Oware

How entrepreneurial is your organization?  And what do entrepreneurial behaviours actually look like in different company cultures?  In today’s episode, we explore this theme in an organization that still thinks of itself as a start-up - by design -  10 years in.

My guest is Casey Oware who is Vice President of Human Resources of Encompass where she oversees compliance, payroll, benefits, safety, equipment, and IT. Casey is a SHRM Senior Certified Human Resources Professional with 15 years of energy industry experience on a national scale. She has been with Encompass since inception and has been pivotal to the development and implementation of systems, processes and procedures that increase business proficiency. 

Prior to Encompass, Casey was a third-party HR consultant for large EPCs in the energy industry which has enabled her to service stake holders, but also remain client focused. Casey graduated from Oklahoma State University with a B.S. in International Business and obtained her Juris Doctorate from Purdue University. 

In this episode of Talent Management Truths, you’ll discover:

  • An example of how to sustain a start-up culture longer-term - by design
  • Insight on how to support people who are not naturally entrepreneurial
  • A discussion around approaches to hiring large cohorts at peak times
