Managing Complexity: Getting Managers to Lead Effectively in an Ever-More-Complex World


Date: May 28, 2014

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET agree that complexity in business is real and here to stay. Global markets and customers, tighter budgets, fewer resources and virtual teams, an aging workforce, generational differences in work commitment, increased governmental regulation, as well as a range of other issues, all contribute to this increased complexity and accelerated pace of change.

In addition, employees are feeling pressure from work and in their personal lives: increased workload, higher performance expectations, aging parents requiring more assistance, providing for college tuitions and their own retirements, and in the case of younger workers, a desire for more work-life balance. 

Managers must keep their teams focused and aligned, and find ways to effectively lead in this in this environment. In light of this, managing complexity in today’s inter-connected world has become a core competency.

Top performing HR organizations are focused on reducing complexity—in their functions, but primarily for the managers and employees.  In this webinar, Hackett Group Principal Stephen Joyce will discuss:

•     What it takes to effectively manage and lead in this environment, and the role HR leaders can play in enabling this to happen;

•     The challenges organizations are likely to face along the way and steps that can be taken to successfully address them; and

•     Noteworthy case studies and some of the key lessons that have been learned by those leading the way on this front.

Please join us in what is sure to be an informative event.

Date: March 25, 2014

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET

Employee wellness is now recognized as a critical business strategy. As HR leaders struggle to reduce medical, disability, absenteeism, and other related costs, as well as increase employee morale and retention during tough economic times, wellness has taken an important role in today’s business environment. A number of studies have proven that investing in employee wellness results in a reduction of healthcare costs and improvements in productivity and other related areas. But these returns have been proven to only occur if, and only if, employee engagement is high enough to improve outcomes.

The fact is, high employee engagement equals outcomes.

So how do you effectively build or evaluate your employee wellness program to ensure you receive the maximum ROI? This session will cover five key tenets that need to be effectively in play, simultaneously, to achieve high engagement throughout your organization!

In addition to detailing these five tenets, this engaging session will review:

•             The research on return on investment of employee wellness;

•             Why some wellness programs don’t work;

•             The "stages of change" behavior-change model;

•             How to use the "stages of change" model to appeal to all employees, no matter what "stage of change" they're at; and

•             Reaching higher engagement and how to sustain that engagement.

How the World's Most Admired Companies Use Corporate Culture as a Source of Competitive Advantage December 10, 2013

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET

Please join us for a complimentary webinar as we discuss the findings from an exclusive HR-specific recalibration of Fortune magazine’s 2013 Most Admired Companies rankings, as well as the key HR and business practices that distinguish these companies from their competitors.

Since 1997, Hay Group has partnered with Fortune magazine annually to identify the Most Admired Companies and the business practices that make them great. In an exclusive arrangement with Human Resource Executive®, Hay Group has analyzed the Fortune data and identified the 50 companies that are most admired when it comes to HR practices and key attributes they share.

A hallmark of Most Admired Companies is a focus on the cultivation of corporate culture. The World’s Most Admired Companies treat culture as a competitive advantage, and leadership plays an active role in nurturing culture to preserve its value as a competitive asset over time.  These companies have figured out how to sustain core values for the long-term while, at the same time, evolving their cultures to stay connected to their markets, customers and employees. That is, they have learned to respect history and change for the future, to maintain continuity and continuously adapt.

During this webinar, the leaders of Hay Group's research team will discuss how Most Admired Companies view and manage corporate culture. They will explore differences in perspectives by geographic region and how Most Admired Companies such as Coca-Cola and IBM use culture to their advantage.

Join us to be the first to learn who made the final cut on this year's list of the Most Admired Companies for HR -- and what distinguishes this elite group of employers from the rest.
