United Way of Salt Lake’s Tocqueville Society is comprised of some of the top leaders in our community. Members of this Donor Network give back to their community at the highest levels, and are recognized both locally and nationally for their philanthropy. One of the biggest challenges for this group, however, has been in finding meaningful ways to engage with one another. This is where the Tocqueville Society Leaders Series comes in.

Tocqueville Society Leaders Series makes the most of the incredible community leaders who make up this Donor Network. These events are fun, interesting, and really highlight a member of Tocqueville Society. This month’s event, featuring Mike Weinholtz, is a terrific example of how the Leaders Series events allow Tocqueville Society members to learn from each other.


Mike Weinholtz is the CEO of CHG Healthcare Services (CHG). CHG was recognized as No. 3 on Fortune Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For last year, and has been consistently recognized for five years in a row! Of particular interest to any business leader is the question, HOW does a company go from good to great? What is the secret behind CHG’s successful corporate culture that allows it to rank nationally among companies like Google?

In Tocqueville Society’s latest Leaders Series, Mike Weinholtz summed that up in one word, “people.” Mike went on to explain how the people of an organization are its greatest asset. “When you have engaged people who are happy to come to work, it makes for more productive people!” In turn, they will be sure to make the clients happy, and so investing in the valuable human resources of your company will make the entire company prosper. This is what fules CHG’s core value of “putting people first.”


The Leaders Series breakfast featuring Mike Weinholtz was well attended, and incredibly well-received. We are so fortunate to have such amazing community leaders in our Tocqueville Society! Together, they are a shining example of what it means to LIVE UNITED!
