Northwest Now: As Boeing celebrates 100th birthday, new book examines shifting company culture

Posted: November 10, 2015

For decades, Boeing has been one of the biggest employers in Western Washington. This year, the aerospace giant is celebrating its 100th birthday, but amidst the celebration, there’s growing concern with employees about the culture that’s been cultivated within the company over the last 20 years.

On this edition of Northwest Now, we take a closer look at a new book written by two professors from the University of Puget Sound that exposes concerns that many employees have about the future of Boeing. Plus, we’ll discuss how this kind of aggressive pursuit of big profits is spreading to other industries.

Northwest Now is a weekly public affairs program that airs Friday at 7:30 p.m. on KBTC.
