This PDC is an update of a highly successful 2001 offering, back by popular demand, and more important now than ever. If you missed it then, here is another chance! In the current business climate EH&S organizations are under fire to reduce budgets and lower headcount. Managers under pressure sometimes pare programs down to little more than maintenance and selective compliance. The EH&S organization itself is sometimes perceived as a cost center with little connection to the fundamental business results. There is a very real opportunity within most organizations to change that perception and the actual value of the EH&S program. This workshop will show you how. The Workshop: This session is a hands-on, highly interactive workshop in which you will learn and apply practical approaches to change the value your EH&S program brings to your organization. Key areas covered include: * Designing an operational plan that directly aligns with the business strategy * Creating an identity as a value producer * Building a client-focused service mindset within your team * Communicating your value proposition to your clients * Focusing your efforts where they matter most * Applying a simple 5-step model to build a high-performance organization * Building and using effective metrics * Aligning your business processes to demonstrate your value proposition
