In this era when employee engagement is critical to success and company branding is of paramount importance, the employee handbook is often neglected as a key component for communication. The employee handbook can be used as a powerful tool for delivering important messages not only to new employees, but also to current employees and the management team.
The development and communication of an organization's purpose and principles create a culture which promotes sustained organizational success. Nearly twenty years after Collins and Porras wrote "Built to Last," organizational leaders are still struggling to its primary message, that mission, vision and values are the key drivers of continued excellent performance.
This webinar is designed for business owners, senior executives and HR leaders who want to unlock the power of HR to drive business results. We will focus on the shift in the senior management and HR leadership mindset and resource allocation necessary for HR to become an indispensable source of business enhancement. The emphasis is on proactively determining the factors driving the success of your organization and then shaping HR activities and programs to support and enhance those factors. In the process you will need to analyze the internal and external business environment, articulate your new vision, and make some difficult choices about staff and programs. This program will fast-forward your thinking and assist you in initiating efforts in each of those areas.
