The Headhunters hosted a webinar with guest speaker Lori Schmidt, CEO of Go Productivity, on How to Invest in Your People to Drive Productivity

When you think about productivity and what it means to your business, what do you think of first? If you are like many business leaders in Canada today, the first thing that comes to mind might be ways to improve processes, technology or facilities. It is true that these are the areas in which businesses typically have clear-cut targets and metrics—but where are the people in this productivity equation? How do your employees factor in when it comes to operational excellence, innovation and the continued evolution and profitability of your organization?

In this webinar, Lori shared great insights from her expertise in productivity, including:

  • What is productivity?
  • How does investing in your human capital lead to economic competitiveness?
  • How do you effectively measure the productivity of your workforce?
  • How can you identify and fill gaps in the knowledge, skills and abilities of your people?
