We took part in the 12th HR Summit

Our HR staff took part in the 12th HR Summit and National Director Višnja Tuškan-Krupić gave a lecture on fostering employee commitment.

 The HR Summit, which was held at the Westin Hotel on 29 May is one of “the most important annual gatherings of HR professionals and an opportunity to exchange the latest ideas, experiences and practices”. The topic of this year’s HR Summit was HR All Around: New Age – New Responsibilities, and our National Director Višnja Tuškan-Krupić gave a lecture on the experience of running a non-profit organization, i.e. on why it is important to inspire and foster employee commitment.

Commitment is defined as the willingness to invest time and energy to achieve what you believe in – it’s a promise, a strong determination to do something. Tuškan-Krupić explained that SOS Children's Village Croatia creates employee commitment through the SOS approach, i.e. through defined values that we all live by together.

Tuškan Krupić likened the role of the national director to that of an orchestra conductor: “The conductor must make sure that all the instruments are in sync, that they are all playing the same composition and that they know why they do so.”
Tuškan Krupić concluded her lecture with the message that we should all take care not only of other people, but also of ourselves, because we can only give happiness and patience to others by being happy and fulfilled ourselves.
