Linking hr practiCe to business success

Presented by Tony Moore of Eckerd

The organizations that will thrive in our current business environment are those who have come to recognize that talent trumps strategy and that success is inextricably linked to the ability to extract the best from each person in the organization. HR plays a critical role in this process; nevertheless many departments operate in a state of chaos because their processes no longer link to business success and the competencies of their people have not kept pace with the changes in the business landscape. Many recognize the need to change however few have found the formula to bring order to the chaos.

In 2008, the HR Team at Eckerd Kids found itself operating in a state of chaos. Eckerd Kids was in need of a significant transformation and its HR team was not positioned to support this effort. “Creating Order from Chaos” is a case study of a dramatic HR transformation that produces a talent strategy linking evaluation and development to the strategic plan, makes organizational culture a core building block, and restructures the HR Department to allow a laser focus on talent management. This practical, entertaining, and highly interactive workshop will walk you through the Eckerd Kids story; outlining the deliberate and intentional steps taken, challenges/obstacles overcome, mistakes made, and systems implemented to drive success. This will all be done while providing you with the framework for executing this change yourself.


  1.  Learn the core components of an effective talent strategy
  2.  Learn how to connect HR practice to business success
  3.  Learn to measure what matters
  4.  Learn steps to create consensus in order to overcome resistance inside and outside of the HR Department
