All of us have jobs that we have to wake up for each day. Do you like this job? Is it a good place to work with a fun environment? For one company, a CHAMPIONSHIP CULTURE has been built upon doing things a little different than the norm.
Ryan McCarty is the former director of customer and employee relations at TCC, the largest Verizon Authorized Retailer in the nation. He was hired by the CEO, Scott Moorehead, who grew TCC from $135 million to $1 billion in sales. Together, Scott and Ryan created a culture that empowered employees through a powerful cultural movement.
Under Ryan’s guidance through TCC’s “Culture of Good,” which enables others to do good in their communities for the value of the investment rather than the return on investment, TCC donated $1 million to Riley Hospital for Children; provided 250,000 backpacks full of school supplies to children; gave away supply packs to 5,000 teachers; and contributed $100,000 in grants to organizations focused on improving the environment.
Ryan created Culture of Good, Inc. to inspire other businesses to create truly altruistic programs that make the world a better place. Ryan believes in order for a company’s Culture of Good to be successful and meaningful, giving back must be engrained in the foundation of its core values. Through Culture of Good, Inc. Ryan helps other organizations engage the hearts of their employees and empower them to make the changes they wish to see in their communities.
In today’s episode, we discuss:

- By decreasing their employee turnover, TCC saved more than $5 million per year
- Why other companies don’t create a culture of good
- That having a cool CEO and leader that is open-minded is key
- How any company can do more good in their business and the community

Big Blue Nation and the University of Kentucky recently won its’ 8th NCAA men’s basketball national championship (editor’s note: originally published on April 26, 2012). Head coach John Calipari and his much-publicized dribble drive offense finally got his first national title after a near miss with the University of Memphis in 2008 against the Kansas Jayhawks. Though Coach Cal added to his already spectacular career, the dribble drive did not really add a national championship to its resume.
