    John Daniel

    Executive Vice President, CHRO

    First Horizon National Corporation 

    Program Description


    If so, you must attend the ATD/SHRM Memphis 90-minute meeting with John Daniel, EVP and CHRO for First Horizon on September 8, 2020! 

    Culture and Engagement:

    How HR Can Help Create a Culture Where Employees Love their Jobs

    Culture determines how organizations really function.  The management guru, Peter Drucker, commented that “Culture eats strategy for breakfast,” and Jack Welch once quipped that “The soft stuff is the hard stuff”, including culture and engagement.  Competitive organizations have cultures aligned for success by taking in the soft stuff to reach the hard stuff, bottom line results.  Human Resources, the keeper of all that is employee in organizational life often have a significant role in promoting the practices that lead to positive cultures.  John Daniel, EVP and Chief HR Officer of First Horizon National Corporation, an experienced change agent, will enlighten us on the variables that form a positive culture, one that engages employees and provides a competitive advantage for organizations. 

    John will discuss the basic assumptions of culture:  how to define and change it and the impact of leadership.  He discusses how is formed and improved.  What is a good or bad culture? He describes why culture is so important.  Organizations with adaptive cultures outperform others in operating earnings, ROI and stock prices.  A good culture literally determines the success of many companies.  

    Who exhibits the organization’s culture in their values and attitudes?  Employees do.  Their behaviors are the manifestation of the organization’s culture and its brand.  If it is an adaptive, positive culture, employees will LOVE to come to work and “own” their role.  John Daniel will make these somewhat “fuzzy” and “soft” concepts of culture and engagement understandable for you as practitioners of HR, culture and engagement.
