Organisational Performance Improvement

The event will be held in Church House on 5 September 2017

This learning event will begin by defining performance not just through single and immediate measures but by assuming that most companies are in business for the long term. We need to measure performance over extended periods. What are the things we should measure and how can we justify investment in organisational performance improvement in the long term when many stakeholders take a shorter term view?

Timings: 09.00-17.00 followed by drinks reception

Who is it for?
Those interested in business performance improvement. HR leaders particularly will want to assess the way their function contributes to organisation performance through its own adaptive inputs, the nurturing of a high performance output driven culture and the dissemination of a clear and winning strategy.

Overview
This learning event will begin by defining performance not just through single and immediate measures but by assuming that most companies are in business for the long term. We need to measure performance over extended periods. What are the things we should measure and how can we justify investment in organisational performance improvement in the long term when many stakeholders take a shorter term view?

Content
Investing for the longer term is often difficult in an environment where short-termism is becoming predominant, and investors are looking for returns today rather than at some time in the future. Smart and responsive organisations will have:
• a clear and compelling strategy
• a high performance culture
• highly trained, skilled and motivated people
• an evaluation feedback process acting as both a learning experience and adjustment mechanism.

Performance improvement is a major part of HR’s contribution. We need to ensure that:
• people understand where the value is
• there is key people alignment with strategic direction and ongoing performance communication
• there are skill-sets, competences, motivation and reward structures to deliver the strategy
• there is full evaluation at individual, team and organisational levels
• there is an overall culture which supports performance improvement.

The day will challenge attendees to embrace organisation improvement, not as a single event but as an ongoing, long-term way of optimising performance.
