13:45- 15:15 – The Culture MAPP – Unlocking the Secrets to a High Performance Culture By Siobhan McHale

Siobhan McHale, Executive General Manager HR (CHRO), Dulux Group

Does your company seem to constantly struggle with dissatisfied customers, under performing employees or disappointed shareholders? If you look “under the hood’ of your business you will invariably find a culture issue. According to Siobhan McHale, EGM HR at DuluxGroup, “Culture is one of the most talked about but least understood concepts in workplaces today”. In this Masterclass Siobhan will talk you through the 4 key components of workplace culture (in the Culture MAPP framework) and take a deeper dive into how to accelerate change. You will hear about the secrets to eliminating ongoing “noise’ and enabling your business to achieve its full potential. The session is packed with practical examples of how to diagnose and accelerate the shift to a higher-performing workplace culture, based on examples of successful change from across four continents. Siobhan’s work has been featured as a case study at Harvard Business School and is a “must-attend” session for those who are advising leaders about how to bring about faster change.
