Upcoming Events

Leadership - Free Webinar November 17th, 2022 

This program is hosted by ARMA New England in collaboration with our sister chapters, ARMA Upstate NY, ARMA Metro NYC-LI, and ARMA Liberty Bell. It is free to members of these chapters as well as ARMA NJ chapter members.

Generational differences in the workforce and post-COVID workplace dynamics are just two of the many cultural challenges facing organizations today. The “Great Resignation” of 2021-22 is an example of how organizations are struggling to retain a productive workforce. Information management can actually be the litmus test to the organization culture. IG Professionals can extract insights into where there may be challenges in an organization to form the story of culture pain points that may be hidden from view. Utilizing business process analysis, this session will showcase how IG practices can enable culture shift in an organization. Ultimately, the goal is to enable business to flow so employees are happy about being there, and c-suite will reduce the impact to business from toxic work culture.??Too frequently, IG professionals try to “sell” IG by focusing on risk reduction and compliance. By getting deeply curious about what the business is doing, we can support organizations to address the issues they face which will directly impact corporate culture.
