Johann Labuschagne Introduction & Leadership
I'm excited to share with you periodic insights, resources and announcements about the great work at Top-Employers Institute.
We've created a podcast series and myself and my colleague, Jennifer Ives, SVP, North America, TEI, will speak on subjects we're passionate about. Sometimes we'll talk to "thought leaders in HR," sometimes we'll talk to each other about great HR measurement tactics, and sometimes we'll offer our own insights and information.
It is under the banner of the latter, above, that I will be talking with you today.
Please listen to my commentary, chime in, let me know what you think, and let's keep the conversation going.
Briefly, at Top Employers, our people are data geeks whose mission for 25 years has been to help organizations better develop their people, drive business performance and certify the best of the best as Top Employers.
We help leaders unwrap organization-wide HR data to more effectively identify where they’re succeeding AND where they have opportunities for growth.
We’re proud of the fact that this year alone over 1100 leading-edge organizations in more than 100 countries – including 40% of the top 50 Global Fortune 500 companies - have earned the right to carry the Top Employers certification seal.
In essence, our insights help highlight the contribution people – an organization’s number one resource – make to the business, so that leadership can make objectively informed decisions on ways to align their HR strategies with their business strategy to drive business performance.
Join me and Jennifer for the Talent Is Transforming podcast, and another insightful program about innovation, leadership, new technology, and strategy, to help guide your organization toward a future of performance. At Top Employers Institute, our motto is to Develop. Always.
