A great organisational culture is one where people are fully engaged and give freely of all of their energy (particularly their discretionary energy).

All the research shows that people will give more to their organisation where there is an alignment between purpose, vision, values and behaviours.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a testing time for organisations and people around the world, and many organisations will not survive. However, in the middle of this pandemic, research shows that many organisations are treating their employees better than ever and in many cases employee trust and engagement is actually going up.

This makes it an ideal time to work on your organisations’ culture. Post COVID-19 the organisations that will thrive (and not only survive) will be the ones that use this opportunity to build a great culture where they engage the hearts and minds of their people.

To do this requires answers to the following questions:

• What is your organisation’s core reason for being?
• What are your organisation’s core values and do those values align with the values of the people in the organisation?
• Are the behaviours of people in the organisation embedded in the organisation’s systems and processes?
• Are the behaviours aligned with the values?

Now more than ever, you need good answers to these questions.

In this interactive online session, John Poulsen will help you to understand why these questions are key in the post COVID-19 world and how you can go about transforming your organisations culture to win the hearts and minds of your people. 

This forum is suitable for:

All HR professionals and practitioners.
