The Behavioral Safety Now Conference, held annually in October, is the premier venue for collecting cutting-edge ideas and strategies for using behavioral technology to achieve your safety goals. Join Novinium president and CEO Glen Bertini for a 1 hour general session, “Lessons in Persistence”.
Lessons in Persistence
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 • 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. • Location: Reno Ballroom
Novinium began its behavioral safety program in 2013. Everything was going according to plan until we acquired a company twice as large. Go to jail, directly to jail, do not pass Go, and do not collect $200. On top of the dozens of problems associated with any acquisition all of our progress was erased. How do you win the hearts and minds of a work force that distrusts new management? One soul at a time.
Our journey is not complete, but we are well on our way. There will be more lessons to learn on the path ahead, but we have experiences and lessons to share. Novinium’s distributed workforce makes communication more challenging than centralized facilities, but in the end we have to touch each individual in a profoundly personal way and distance is just another obstacle to overcome.
The audience will be inspired by stories, anecdotes, and data demonstrating success. No sugar coating here though. I will share the setbacks and the disappointments, and I will reveal the insights that each of those brought to the management team and the employee-run behavioral safety committee. I will describe a whole new level of “managementless” involvement that requires a leap of faith, but has provided ample rewards. We coined a phrase, “technology enabled safety” and the audience will learn how to leverage technology to improve voluntary participation and to impact actual safety performance. The presentation will inspire persistence in the face of obstacles, describe a roadmap of how to benefit from setbacks, and provide hope to the assembled.
