Cultural Agility & Change: Scaling “Performance Development” at GE
Join Janice Semper, Culture Leader at GE, as she discusses the journey of scaling Performance Development, GE’s new approach to employee development focused on real-time Insights, frequent Touchpoints and customer-focused Priorities, across a population of over 250,000 employees, ending a legacy management system from the 1970s. Janice will give an in-depth explanation of how FastWorks methodology, GE’s set of tools and principles that encourages testing assumptions quickly, helped her to build an approach for development designed with and for employees.
In a world where change seems to be the only constant, Janice understands and embraces the need to be adaptive and simpler. With over 20 years of experience in the Human Resources function, Janice fuses her deep domain expertise with her drive for continued learning and development to keep this 125-year old company as competitive and relevant as ever.
