Through expert commentary and thought-provoking interviews, we explore the intersection of corporate responsibility, profitability, environmentalism, social justice, and positive psychology. Through it all, we seek to answer the question: How can we create sustainable businesses that make the world a better place? Learn more about us and get in touch at osiolsabs.com.

The word “leadership” is thrown around a lot. We’ve been talking about it a fair amount on this podcast as well. But what does that mean?

Starting a podcast is its own special journey. I’ve hosted podcasts in the past, but this is the first time I started one from scratch. It’s been a little bumpier of a road than I anticipated. In this short episode I thought I’d share the experience, as well as talk a little more about why I started all of this to begin with, and how someone stole our original name out from under us.

Welcome to the first episode of our podcast. You'll get to know a few people on our team and a bit about what we're doing as we explore company values. A lot of companies talk about values, but what are they really for, and how do company values relate to our own personal values? We share our own stories and thoughts about it.

You can read our values in our public Osio Labs Employee Handbook.
