Join Trish and Steve as we talk with Anthony Abbatiello from Deloitte.  We talk a little NBA and then dive into the topic of the day:  Workforce Culture and how it is measured and driven.  Our guest, Anthony Abbatiello, is a Principal in the Deloitte Human Capital practice, based out of the New York office. Anthony focuses on advising global clients on building high performance businesses that drive growth and optimization through Human Resources and Talent Management.   He is the responsible for the Leadership, Culture and Engagement practice.

In this episode of HR Happy Hour, we cover some compelling aspects of workforce culture:

  • Misalignment of corporate culture with business objectives
  • How people make decisions 
  • How to harness the learnings of marketers when examining human behavior
  • Putting emotion into culture analytics
  • Implementing an effective culture
  • How to take analytics and measurement and use it to enact real cultural change

Because culture changes slowly, it’s important for leaders to begin aligning culture with corporate strategy as soon as possible. Executives must adopt a long-term effort of actively managing changes to culture that are needed to have a lasting impact on business performance and the bottom line.
