Program Description

Dr. Lepora Menefee tackles the seemingly fuzzy, yet important and only now popular phenomenon-Culture. Join Dr. Menefee to discuss how to operationalize culture and measure a direct relationship between it and business results. We will also discuss a comprehensive model of culture that addresses the People Relationships, Values, Motivation, Processes, Performance and Rewards.

Culture plays a vital role in influencing business outcomes and the likelihood of effective performance. Special attention will focus on the role of HR in shaping culture for the organization, and the importance of balancing what responsibilities lie with HR and what roles are beyond HR’s scope.
