About Event

**To attend this event, you can name your own price. The Operations Nation team is building a community-powered knowledge sharing platform for current and future operations leaders, and we are currently raising funds to be able to focus on this project full-time.**

Over the last decade, we've seen a general increase in the recognition of how important People Strategy and People Operations are to an organisation. It's no longer just about the compliance of stereotypical HR tasks like contracts, compensation, and benefits, but the fine art of attracting, hiring, onboarding, managing, and progressing staff through their employee life cycle. As such, it turns out that COOs and other operations leaders are often accountable for people operations, either directly or indirectly. 👥

Please join us for what will be an exciting cONversation with Janie Links, Founder of High Calibre People! With Janie’s help, you can find out how to act as a Chief People Officer when your company doesn't have one. 👀

We'll discuss:

  • How do you help your company create a functional leadership team, especially when other leaders are behaving dysfunctionally?

  • How do you design a company-wide org structure with clearly defined functions, without creating silos?

  • What phases of the employee journey are the most important to build processes around as you scale your business?

  • And any other questions you have! 💬

In doing so, she helps companies solve people-related problems quicker and more effectively than before. 📈
