Team Behind the Team: Evolution of Talent Performance, Culture & Diversity at the USOC
The US Olympic Committee is the recognized governing body for Olympic and Paralympic sport in the US. Our mission is to support US Olympic and Paralympic athletes in achieving sustained competitive excellence while demonstrating the values of the Olympic Movement, thereby inspiring all Americans. The USOC is a nonprofit entity and receives no governmental funding as other international Olympic & Paralympic Committees do.
With 450 team members, the USOC prioritizes talent performance, culture and diversity as key success factors to ensuring an American stands on the podium during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Pan American Games and Youth Olympic Games. We call ourselves the Team Behind the Team. Over the last 24 months, we have planned for strategic evolution for the next quadrennial, 2017-2020, and this session will share those strategies, implementation plans and success measures such as employee engagement.
Pam Sawyer is the managing director of human resources for the US Olympic Committee. She is responsible for people strategies that drive organizational effectiveness and high performance.
