Special Report: Human Capital Management

February 2015

Want to get more out of your workforce? First you have to understand your corporate culture, says Profit Editor in Chief Aaron Lazenby.


“Corporate culture provides a powerful lens through which to view digital disruption,” he writes in the February issue of the magazine. “Understanding your organization’s culture allows you to see how your team works together to solve problems—and resolve conflict. It means understanding what you should and shouldn’t spend money on. It means knowing what excites your workforce and what makes them restless.”

In this special report, hear from Oracle Chief Human Resources Officer Joyce Westerdahl and Wendy Cottrell, global HRIS manager for National Instruments, who discuss the cultural aspects of the technology projects they have overseen. Plus, find out about more about what will be happening at Oracle HCM World this March, and more.
