2017 HR Strategy Forum
The Future-Proofed Organisation
This event was held at the iconic Science Museum and brought together many of our leading faculty with more than 100 senior learning and development executives, to talk about the challenges companies need to deal with to ensure their businesses are future proofed.
How can organisations attract and keep the best people?
According to Professors Rob Goffee and Gareth Jones, they all face the task of building and maintaining authenticity.
The Forum asked the question: What does an authentic organisation look like?
At the event, where speakers included the Global Head of Culture at Barclays, the Chief Learning Officer at global consulting firm A.T. Kearney and the Head of People and Organisations at Novo Nordisk, the professors summarised their answer, based on a simple acronym: DREAMS.
D - Difference beyond Diversity – “I want to work somewhere I can be myself”
R - Radical honesty – “Tell me the truth before someone else does”
E - Extra Value – “Add value to me, don’t exploit me”
A - Authenticity – “mean what you say and say what you mean”
M - Meaning – “I want a meaningful job in an organisation which itself has meaning”
S - Simple Rules – “I want simple agreed rules, not a fog of bureaucracy”
