Everybody Matters - The CEO of a $2.8B company integrates people, purpose, and performance

Everybody Matters.  That’s the belief of today’s guest.  Bob Chapman is the Chairman and CEO of Barry-Wehmiller, a $2.8 billion global capital equipment and engineering consulting company, and the author of Everybody Matters: The Extraordinary Power of Caring for Your People Like Family.   Following a string of revelations, Bob began implementing a “people in harmony with profit” approach to managing his business in 1987.  The company has since grown 18% per year, and its stock price has increased 14% per year.  Far more importantly, Barry-Wehmiller has become known as a company that truly cares for its employees and their fulfillment (earning Bob the number 3 slot on Inc.'s list of The World's Top 10 CEOs).  Bob joins us to talk about some of the profound changes in attitude, performance, and flourishing that his 12,000 employees have experienced along the way.    


Leadership is a privilege and profound responsibility that offers the chance to care for people and to make a huge impact on their lives. 

Measuring success by the way the company touches the lives of its people and stakeholders. 

Three things that shape the foundation of Barry-Wehmiller's leadership principles.
