By: Scott Rude and Patti Seda
Posting organizational values at our companies is a rite of passage today. And, as HR professionals we intuitively believe living our organizational values is important. Doing so should engage people and perhaps create competitive advantage, right? But, is it true; is there a business case to be made for engaging our people through organizational values? And, if so, what can we do to shake the dust off the plaques and bring values to life, incorporating them in the fabric of our companies? In this interactive session we will explore the function of organizational values, their correlation to our employer brands and business results, and develop a plan to renew a commitment to values in our companies.
Objectives of this presentation include:
- Demonstrate the importance of organizational values
- Explore ways to weave values into the company fabric
- Move from cliché to meaningful, high impact values creation
