Did you know that within the first 48 hours of your employees attending a traditional training or learning event, their knowledge retention drops to 33 percent? Did you also know that research now shows that nearly 80 percent of learning in the workplace takes place informally?

Fifty to 60% of companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives (Source: McKinsey & Co and IBM Global Business Services). What can be done about this and whose responsibility is it to see that the situation improves?
The first question is why does this happen with the answer being because employees don’t know what they need to do to help the company achieve its goals and objectives, and/or because they are too preoccupied with personal issues to do what is expected of them.
The responsibility for this rests with the CEO, however he or she can’t do what is needed alone. While Human Resources should be the obvious choice to address this problem it is not viewed as a “line” function as often as it is “staff”, and as a result, they are not called upon to help with goal achievement.
This presentation discusses both the problem (why companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives) as well as what HR can do to gain the trust of senior management regarding their contribution to the overall effort.

Workplace grief costs U.S. businesses billions of dollars a year in reduced productivity and increased errors and accidents, yet the word grief rarely shows up in reports. In The Hidden Annual Cost of Grief in America’s Workplace 2003 report, the keyword in the title of this report is the word "hidden." It is just that factor that has caused the problem to escalate to now unimaginable proportions and it is the essential reason that it is getting worse rather than better. In this presentation we will address the definition of grief, the grief/workplace connection, the cost of "presenteeism" to corporations and we will discover how managers and other employees can support coworkers who have experienced personal loss.
