Transforming organisations through people engagement


Achieving excellence in people strategy: Discover, deliberate and differentiate.

AmicusHorizon swept the floor at the 2012 HR Excellence Awards, winning an amazing six gongs - something that has never been achieved in the history of the awards. But it has not always been a winning company. Steve Walker, chief executive, will discuss how he and his HR team have transformed the housing association from an organisation on the brink of financial meltdown, with dire customer service records, disengaged and unmotivated staff and poor results into a dynamic and forward-thinking organisation with inspired staff, an exciting vision for the future and a passion for helping its customers, local communities and the wider world.

Amicus-Horizon is now the number one peer performer in 18 of 20 KPIs, has a Moody's AA3 rating and achieved a £6.3 million surplus in 2011/12. Through the creation of a positive belief system, a can-do culture and by setting 'Big Hairy Goals' - together with a 'kick-ass' HR strategy - CEO Steve Walker has transformed the organisation. Along the way, confidence grew, performance targets were smashed and finances transformed.

In the last key-note speech of the day, Steve Walker's speech, 'From zeroes to heroes: transforming organisations through people engagement', will leave you motivated, awed and inspired, giving you ideas to carry forward into your own HR people strategy. His inspirational story outlines simple lessons for everyone.

With a built-in Q+A session, this is an exceptional opportunity to hear, learn and interact with the unprecedented winner of so many HR Excellence Awards, AmicusHorizon.
