Philly SHRM Professional Development Event


Having a high performance culture and an organization’s ability to achieve its strategy, go hand in hand. Organizations that take the time to be intentional about defining who they are, and which behaviors matter most, are primed for top performance in the market. Such organizations are staffed not only by high performing leaders, but by highly capable employees throughout the enterprise who embrace the defined cultural norms. These cultural norms ensure that employees are moving in the right direction, and that clients, customers, and other stakeholders, experience all that a powerful culture has to offer.

How have high performing organizations developed strong cultures, which enable their strategies to come to fruition? What have these organizations (business and HR leaders) done to ensure that employees at every level within the enterprise, embrace a high performance culture? This event kicks off with a case study of how UnitedHealthcare has built a culture with shared values that delivered on both the mission and the financial objectives of its business. Attendees will learn about:

  • Using a culture value lens to solve business challenges
  • Keys to successfully shift corporate culture
  • The importance of a common language and culture shaping tools and approaches

The case study will be followed by a panel discussion with C-Suite leaders which will take a deeper dive into this topic, provide best practices and allow for audience Q&A.
