Transforming Organisational Culture with CIPD

We are very excited to be partnering with CIPD to deliver a virtual panel event on Thursday 22nd June at 1pm. The event will focus on “Transforming Organisational Culture”  and features guest panellists Alice Stephenson, Founder & CEO at Stephenson Law, Arjen Cooper-Rolfe, CEO at Involvement, Becky Norman, Editor of online HR and L&D publications and and Tiggy Robinson, Partner at Nine Feet Tall.

Healthy organisational culture matters. Not just for retaining and recruiting employees, but also in terms of the work delivered across the organisation. In fact, Forbes reported “highly engaged teams show 21% greater profitability” making their organisations more competitive and efficient. Moreover, employees who feel their voice is heard are 4.6 times more likely to feel empowered to perform their best work.

There have been many stories in the news recently about the impact of toxic culture and the knock-on effect it can have on employees, stakeholders as well as sales and customer retention. So how can organisations address issues relating to culture? Where should the transformation begin? Join Nine Feet Tall and our guests as they address these questions.

The discussions will include:

  • Links between culture and organisational performance
  • Aligning strategy and purpose
  • Embracing Agile working practices
  • What it means to have a truly flexible working structure
  • Why trust is the basis for high performing teams
  • Improving employee experience by empowering teams
  • Organisational culture and the role of HR
  • Where to start on the transformation journey

Under Arjen’s watch, Involvement has radically transformed from a traditional half-century-old family concern in the Midlands into the pre-eminent business of its kind, continually pushing the sector forward.

Now diversified into Fulfilment and IT for partner brands, and with more extensions on the launch pad, Involvement is one of Britain’s most progressive companies in its approach to people, inclusion and customer service, with a groaning sideboard of awards and independent accolades to prove it, culminating in being named Employer of the Year in the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards.

Arjen says: “Together, we’ve transformed this business over the past decade by recognising that it’s not about the product, it’s about the people.”
