Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), Workplace (Technical) | Intended Audience: Mid-Level
Workplace Application:
Attendees will leave with concrete ideas about how multiple programs cumulatively serve and support staff worldwide in a global organization. 

Jhpiego is an international health non-profit affiliated with Johns Hopkins University. As a globally matrixed and donor-funded organization with 4,200 employees in 40 countries, we've had to continually adjust to market forces, increased competition, and localization. Learn about 5 things we've done in learning and organizational development, innovation, performance management, and staff wellbeing that have kept us competitive.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how a bundle of HR and operational programs phased in over time cumulatively contribute to staff performance, engagement, and retention;
  • Appreciate how the usage of discretionary funds complements donor-funded project support;
  • Empathize with how one organization's acknowledgement of internal inequity around staff wellbeing led to a stronger and more solid commitment to all employees.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
