Breakfast Session - Sep 12th - Ghent
Any business' goal is to grow and expand their services, become better at what they do or conquer new markets. Growth means change, which is often met with resistance from employees.
What if there was a way to bring together everyone's interests? Alpro has allowed their employees to grow together with the company – and combined this with multiple process improvements in Finance.
On Sep 12th, Marc De Boom and Paul Denayer will show you how HR and Finance can go hand in hand in a double digit growth context and how they managed to achieve this by focussing on three foundations:
- Talent and organization
- Processes and systems
- How growth of people goes hand in hand with growth of the company
- Why focus on learning & development has a positive impact on retention
- How internal mobility is stimulated
- The track record of Process improvements in Finance
