Agile People: A Radical Approach for HR (Online)

19. January 2021
kl. 09.00 - 11.00  

Corporate cultures, global mindsets and employee priorities are changing, which means management and human resource departments must also evolve. To ensure teams are well crafted, motivated and successful, managers and HR professionals must step outside their comfort zone and adapt to younger, newer ways of thinking—they must become Agile.

Become agile…. We hear it everywhere, but what does it mean to be agile, and what is HR’s role in making an agile organization?

Agile - NOCA

At this NOCA event, we will try to give you some inspiration! Therefore, we have invited Pia-Maria Thoren, the author of the two books: “Agile people – A Radical Approach for HR & Managers” and her latest “Agile People Principles”.

Pia-Maria Thoren will at this event outline how HR-professionals, managers, company decision-makers and employees can adopt the flexible, fluid, customer-focused mindset of modern tech companies to inspire their workers and strengthen their organizations.

She will present an agile framework, showing how companies can do the following:

  • Create a structure and culture for an organization to meet future challenges
  • Give management and HR a changed mindset and the tools to facilitate employee drive and performance
  • Empower employees to become motivated stakeholders
  • Adopt hiring practices that value attitude, behavior and competence
  • Create a passionate, loyal and accomplished workforce.
