Driving Performance through Better Balanced Business: 'It's more than just the numbers'
Statistics speak for themselves, better balance makes better business. Companies with better balanced teams outperform those that don’t. However, it's so much more than just the numbers....
We are all aware of the importance of diversity and balance, of organisations delivering on targets to ensure that no barriers stand in the way of the best talent leading organisations to drive performance. When we look back at the progress that’s been made on the issue of diversity in business over the last few years, can we afford to stop here? Can we, or you as a leader of people, afford to succumb to diversity fatigue? In order to collaboratively drive performance through better balanced business, we have to recognise that it’s more than just the numbers. As leaders, how do we continue to manage our teams, our organisations and our prospective talent to ensure a sustained shift in workplace cultures and leadership styles and to develop a robust and diverse talent pipeline to support the future of the economy?
The best performing companies have the best leaders, the best performing teams and attract, retain and develop the best talent.Talent Management is one of the key enablers to delivering a sustainable business.
The Balanced Business Forum (formerly Women’s Business Forum) is the world’s first gender balanced leadership conference. Unique in this respect, we bring together not only a great mix of male and female leaders, but representation from all sectors of business and industry to learn, be inspired and network.
We challenge and debate leadership and organisational performance methods, offering delegates progressive and sustainable talent management solutions.
Whilst the Balanced Business Forum is an international conference, we are committed to supporting, developing and enabling talent from all regions across the UK. We recognise that this support should not just be focussed on London and the City and, therefore, this year we have purposely chosen to bring the conference to the North of England allowing organisations to support all their talent regardless of gender, sector or region.
