Nordson's Vice President of Human Resources Bruce Fields accepted the award during the Forum's first national conference on people performance management, recently held at McCormick Center South in conjunction with Marketing Days and The Motivation Show.
"It is an honor to accept this award from the Forum, which has generated substantial research and knowledge about the burgeoning business field of people performance management," Fields said. "Nordson's people performance strategies arose from our unwavering commitment to our customers. We invest time and other resources to recruit talented people who can deliver solutions to meet customers' needs."
According to Fields, Nordson's culture places people performance and people management as keys to corporate performance. He directly correlates this philosophy with Nordson's 13% annual sales growth rate since 1965.
Fields categorized Nordson's successful people performance strategy into five components:
- High-Performing and Successful Organization
- Stimulating Work & Career Opportunities
- Effective Global Leadership
- Positive Work and Life Balance
- Corporate Culture/Values and Expectations
