Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC), discussed the intersection between organizational culture and business performance during a panel discussion at Dykema’s 6th Annual Definitive Conference for Dental Service Organizations (DSOs). The event was held on July 11th at the Omni Dallas Hotel in Dallas, Texas.
An event designed for practice owners, executives, and investors, Dykema’s Conference for DSOs assembled well-renowned thought leaders in the dental industry to share their experiences and best practices with attendees. Along with Steve Bilt, the Chief Executive Officer of Smile Brands Inc., Mr. Bergman participated in the “Titans of the Dental Industry” panel discussion, where he addressed a wide range of topics such as attracting and retaining talent, maintaining a positive organizational culture, giving back to underserved populations, using the DSO model to enhance clinical care, and reinventing and re-energizing business strategy.
“Dentistry is a people business, and success in business is always about people,” said Mr. Bergman. “Whether a DSO or a multinational company like Henry Schein, attracting and retaining talent is essential. In our experience, a values-based workplace culture that is embraced by all team members enhances productivity, morale, collegiality, and respect throughout the organization. It’s the foundation of our success.”
During the panel, Mr. Bergman also stressed the importance of giving back to the community, referencing Henry Schein’s global corporate social responsibility program, Henry Schein Cares, and its commitment to “doing well by doing good.” This commitment is exemplified through Company programs that are designed to enhance access to care, improve environmental sustainability, and foster a positive organizational culture.
