As we strategically invest in our talent, they begin to recognize a real path for their growth in the organization, and it helps improve their productivity and build loyalty.
Atlanta, CA (PRWEB) July 16, 2008
Human capital management firm TalentQuest will host a webinar with pharmacy chain Duane Reade titled "Using Talent Management to Transform Your Organizational Culture," on Thursday, July 24, from 1 to 2 p.m. Eastern Time.
Robin Costa, Director of Human Resources for Duane Reade, and Dr. Adrianne McVeigh, a consultant with TalentQuest, will discuss using talent management to lead and support the transformation of an organizational culture, benefiting employees and customers alike.
Organizational culture -- the shared, beliefs, assumptions, values, rules and norms of a group -- impact how individuals behave and perform and collaborate to achieve success. Whether it's a newer organization establishing a corporate identity or a 100-year old organization reinventing itself, talent management initiatives can make or break a company's culture.
Aimed at HR professionals and business leaders, the webinar will address:
1. What impact culture has on organizations;
2. Whether the culture is aligned with and supporting the organization's overarching business priorities;
3. How talent management leads and/or supports the transformation of the culture;
4. How organizations can ensure buy-in of talent management initiatives.
"Our employees are definitely noticing and appreciating the talent management initiatives we're building with TalentQuest, such as our DM Assessment and Developing Emerging Leaders training," said Costa, who handles HR for Duane Reade's 250-plus retail locations, as well as the company's corporate office and distribution centers. "As we strategically invest in our talent, they begin to recognize a real path for their growth in the organization, and it helps improve their productivity and build loyalty."
