ATLANTA (PRWEB) March 31, 2021
Georgia Tech’s Organizational Effectiveness Conference is returning for a third year and registration is now open for the April 30, 2021 session. The popular program has been reimagined as a three-part virtual series that will leave participants inspired and with a greater knowledge of the aspects required for creating integrated alignment within their workplace. Each session’s unique theme is designed to empower people management and HR professionals across industries to lead change and growth within their companies and achieve holistic organizational effectiveness. Even before the Covid-19 pandemic abruptly sent workforces across the globe into a virtual setting, a majority of the U.S. workforce was disengaged. This rapid shift in communication and operational processes can lead to disconnection and translate to poor performance, making a focused and integrated organizational strategy more valuable than ever.
The next session, which takes place April 30, 2021, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET, expands upon improving organizational performance through alignment of people, processes, and structure. The program will concentrate on overcoming barriers to success by building continuous improvement into every aspect of an organization. These areas of focus include the following:
Leadership & Culture - Driving and maintaining a culture of excellence and continuous improvement.
Structure & Organizational Alignment - Aligning methodologies and organizational frameworks to secure long-lasting, value-adding results.
Tools & Techniques - Implementing emerging tools and techniques for more agile and efficient business improvements.
Georgia Tech’s Organizational Effectiveness conference brings together industry leaders and innovators, providing opportunities for participant learning and joint discovery. The keynote speaker is Amy Zimmerman, co-founder of PeopleCo. and chief people officer at Relay Payments, who will share her approach to building an employee culture that connects with the company’s strategic and financial goals. Conference panelists and facilitators include leaders at Georgia Tech, Microsoft, Google, McDonald’s, and other high-profile organizations.
A full afternoon of industry panel discussions followed by small group conversations and a networking hour, allow attendees to dive deeper into these topics and build connections with colleagues.
