Driving Organisational Performance:

HR’s Critical Role

Online | Friday 27 September 2024
12.00 – 13.00 BST (13.00 – 14.00 CEST)


Business performance has to be delivered at the organisational, business unit, team and individual level. Management and HR often focus on the individual and spend too much time and money designing and redesigning the appraisal process, which in reality has little impact on overall business performance. Considering the organisation as a whole, this event will explore what HR should focus on to actually shift the needle on business performance. Attendees will leave with a clear idea of what is meant by performance (good and bad) and the levers that HR can use to drive superior performance for the organisation.  

Learning Objectives

  • Apply an evidence-based methodology and framework to the use of performance management in your organisation.
  • Deepen your understanding of what is takes to create a high-performing environment and the levers HR can pull to drive superior organisational performance.
  • Gain insight from renowned business leaders and HR practitioners on where HR should focus in order to deliver higher business performance.

Who is this event for?

HR Leaders and specialists with responsibility for performance management, organisational effectiveness and creating a high-performance culture.
