“It’s not surprising to see that the greatest concern of executives at large organizations is leadership talent development and strategy. HR leaders can show value to CEOs and CFOs by focusing on strategies to further cultivate senior talent and to keep the valued leaders their organization already has.” —Gretchen Alarcon, vice president, Oracle HCM Strategy
“A learning culture is a set of organizational values, conventions, processes, and practices that encourage individuals—and the organization as a whole—to increase knowledge, competence, and performance. 'High impact' simply describes the idea that the learning culture positively impacts business results. In other words, it makes a difference.” —From Seven Steps to Building a High-Impact Learning Culture (pdf)
“What causes employees to hop on to Facebook, Twitter, a blog, or a chat room – or talk to other parents on the PTA about your company? What ideas do you have for offering freedom, showing creativity, or providing an unusual reward?” —Erik Wahl, author of Unthink
“Here’s where [managers] get the most hung up: They think that Results-Only Work Environment is a work-from-home program. They really get all bound up with, 'How am I going to control everyone’s schedules and know where everybody is? ''They have to get off the notion that flexibility even matters or exists.” —Jody Thompson, author of Why Managing Sucks and How to Fix It
“To provide an even more rewarding experience for the HR industry than in the past, Oracle decided to make a dedicated space available that will enable us to present expanded coverage and create more networking opportunities for HR executives and line-of-business managers, along with our traditional HR IT audience.” —Michelle Newell, Oracle’s senior director of HCM product marketing, on expanded HCM Coverage at Oracle OpenWorld 2013
