HR Business Breakfast

40 per cent of senior executives starting a new job found their first three months to be so bad that they considered walking away from it: How to set up executives for success and what CEOs need from HRDs to make it happen.

Join us at this Business Breakfast to explore the report findings that “as lost productivity cascades through the team the total financial impact of a poor start is exponentially multiplied”. Lucy McGee, of the Harvey Nash Leadership Services Practice will present the findings on her research Onboard and upwards: How an executive’s first 90 days make or break the ones that follow.  We will then invite a round table discussion to debate and address the issues.

  • Overview of Harvey Nash’s recent research into executive onboarding and its impact on performance, as covered in the FT in November
  • What 200 FTSE executives told us about how to attract and secure the best candidates
  • Executive’s own views on how best to set them up for success in a new role
  • Stories from the front line
    • CEOs’ own best and worst experiences and what this has taught them about onboarding executive
    • The importance of the partnership with the HRD in navigating senior people through the process
  • Open discussion

Start 7.30am for 8.00, finish 9.30am

Address: Impact Executives, Heron Tower, 110 Bishopsgate, London, EC2N 4AY
