"Family Values and Your HR Practice:
Turning Idealistic Value Statements Into a Talent
Does it have to be so lame? Kris Dunn leads this session designed to evaluate the connection between company values and your talent practices, and how getting values right upfront drives success, which in turn drives a performance culture and (gasp) internal succession. You want the connection? Then you’ll have to be an advocate for making your values real and at times, making people uncomfortable.
Session requirement: Come ready to think and apply values in a judgmental fashion.
What you'll learn in this session:
- The danger of the status quo and following the pack when it comes to company values.
- Trends in the field related to dumping traditional values and adding something known as "potential" or "DNA" factors.
- The connection between talent/DNA factors, recruiting, performance management and succession planning.
- How various stakeholders have dramatically different expectations and desires when it comes to company values - and who is right.
- What you can do if you think your company values have less life than the Dead Sea - without losing your job
