Transformational Culture provides a blueprint for a fair, just, inclusive, sustainable, and high performing organization. With a foreword from Dave Ulrich and expert analysis of the benefits of a people-focused and values lead organization, it provides 8 transformational enablers to deliver individual, team and business success. Guidance is also included on how to tackle toxic cultures and behaviours, how to shift the dial from retributive to restorative justice, and how to develop humane and human HR and management systems. The book offers practical guidance for HR professionals and business leaders on how to redefine their culture and to embed a unique, practical framework to assist with the resolution of concerns, complaints, and conflicts at work. Tried and tested toolkits and templates plus case studies from organizations who have successfully implemented this approach including London Ambulance Service, Aviva, The FT and British Retail Consortium are contained within Transformational Culture making this an invaluable guide for anyone wishing to put their people and their values first.
