“Organizational culture matters”: Leadership, staff well-being, and living our values

Wed, 25 Nov 2020 02:22:52 +0000

Organization: Professionals in Humanitarian Assistance and Protection
Start date: 3 Dec 2020
End date: 3 Dec 2020
Registration deadline: 3 Dec 2020

For a long time, humanitarian organizations have faced situations reminding us that how we carry out our work is as important as what we do – including how agencies approach the mental and physical well-being of staff members to avoid long-term exhaustion, burnout, injury, or illness. Apart from the direct impact to individual staff members when the duty of care is compromised, organizations also face potential risks of an operational, reputational, safety and security, fiduciary, or legal and ethical nature.

The top management of an organization plays a critical role in managing risks and ensuring that staff and those we assist in our day-to-day work are cared for. This has been the focus of a joint ICVA-CHS Alliance project on the CEO role in driving culture change to enable a positive workplace culture, safeguard staff well-being, and live our humanitarian values.

Join ICVA, the CHS Alliance, and PHAP on 3 December for a webinar in which we will discuss the findings from this project and discuss practical challenges faced by staff and management as well as insights into solutions to improve the ability of senior executives to promote the necessary change. We will hear from Melissa Pitotti, co-author of the report, who will provide a summary of the findings generated from the interviews and focus group discussions with experts and CEOs. Liza Jachens, Organisational Psychologist at Webster University, will share the results from her research of burnout and mental illness among humanitarian workers. We will also hear from speakers on the role of senior leadership in driving culture change among other topics.

This is the fourth webinar of the Learning Stream on Risk Management in Practice.
