Many of our high-performing EHS programs are at risk of stagnating, or worse, declining due to competing priorities, personnel changes, and budget constraints. Setting different leadership goals enable us to make a step-change in EHS performance. Learn how others manage the dilemma of setting goals related to performance versus goals to drive site-specific behaviors. Hear how your peers balance the demands of external metrics with internal goals. How do world-class EHS leaders combine lagging and leading indicators to drive EHS leadership behaviors? Hear and share best practices for integrating global EHS goals into business management systems.
