CHICAGO – Tasty Catering, leading corporate catering and event planning services company, is proud to announce the release of a new book by CEO and Chief Culture Officer Thomas J. Walter. It’s My Company Too! How Entangled Companies Move Beyond Employee Engagement For Remarkable Results, written by Dr. Kenneth R. Thompson, Dr. Ramon L. Benedetto, and Thomas J. Walter, with Molly Meyer, provides deep insight into eight award-winning, market-leading companies, including Tasty Catering, to explore how the highest-performing organizations develop a unified drive for excellence, providing a path to world-class financial and customer-focused success.
“Creating an entangled organization with entangled employees at every level does not happen overnight,” says Thomas Walter, a serial entrepreneur who has been an owner/operator in the food and beverage service industry for over forty years, and a partner, principal, president or CEO of twenty-nine start-up companies and three acquisitions. “I had a few tough lessons along the way before mastering trueleadership, which is engaging the minds and hearts of people.” Currently, Walter serves on the advisory boards of five Chicago-area companies and two universities.
In addition, he is an active member of the Academy of Management, the Small Giants Community, and the Chicago Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame. With a laser focus on the importance of human capital, values-driven organizational culture and high service standards, Walter and the Tasty Catering team have won numerous awards for excellence in culture and in catering including “Best Place to Work” and “Caterer of the Year.” Other companies featured in It’s My Company Too!—companies that have rejected command-and-control in favor of transformational leadership which has led to entanglement—are: Integrated Project Management, MidwayUSA, Tarlton Corporation, The North Lawndale Employment Network and Sweet Beginnings, Mike’s Carwash, Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital, and Springfield Remanufacturing Company.
