They say a good company culture starts with top executives leading by example and demonstrating the business’s values themselves. At Cambium Networks, an international wireless technology company, CEO Atul Bhatnagar has taken that advice to heart. Once every month, he chats with his employees’ children (including middle-school kids, college students, and all ages in between) over videoconference, providing advice on subjects ranging from dealing with online bullies and managing your time to choosing a college major and getting enough exercise.

A father of five himself, Atul told The Wall Street Journal that “the boundaries between work and life have vanished, so leaders must do a better job of acknowledging the realities parents face at home. If executives can offer helpful wisdom or serve as an additional sounding board … they should do so.”

You can learn more about Atul’s video chats by checking out the top spot on our list below of must-read articles for talent professionals.
