HOLYOKE, MA (June 18, 2015) – Janice Mazzallo, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer at PeoplesBank, will be presenting on “Fostering a Culture that Encourages and Rewards Employee Entrepreneurial Risk Taking” at the International Quality & Productivity Center: Talent Management Exchange on July 20 in Austin, TX. This particular conference is limited to senior executives. An expert on employee engagement, culture change, and life-work balance initiatives, Mazzallo has presented at two other recent national conferences as well and has been invited to speak at the Employee Benefit News: Benefits Forum & Expo in October.

Mazzallo’s presentations draw in part from her experiences at PeoplesBank, where as part of a leadership team that planned and implemented a new strategic direction, she was able to help establish a unique culture that focused on employee development, volunteerism, and mentorship. The bank can not only show a direct impact on its bottom line resulting from this culture shift, it also has received significant external recognition – including being named a Boston Globe “Top Place To Work” three years in a row as well as a Massachusetts Chamber “Employer of Choice.”
