HR decisions affect company finances.
Find out how much!
A revolutionary game for managers and HR departments.
Experience real work situations.
See how they affect company finances. Apply the conclusions to your managerial activities.
We invite managers and HR departments to participate in a workshop that presents company management in a different, unconventional form. Acquisition of the most valuable employees by competitors, changing legislation, budget freezes, restructuring, mergers – are just some of the tasks facing workshop participants.
We know very well that HR decisions have an impact on a company’s financial result, but to what extent, we are not able to measure.
The everyday reality in many companies is as if decisions concerning people management were something completely separate from financial results and had no influence on them!
Participating in BottomLine will allow you to experience real work situations and profit-building strategies based on the right HR decisions.
You will be introduced to the game by experienced experts.

An innovative game designed for professionals.
You will understand the impact of HR decisions on the company's bottom line.
Players take on the role of managers tasked with meeting the changing business and economic conditions of a chemical company. Each module is a new challenge, reflecting one year in the life of the company.
Work begins with simulation rounds where participants will learn the impact of sample decisions on six key metrics and consequently on the company’s profit and return on sales (ROS).
Learn the impact of decisions on key HR indicators
During the game, participants will learn the general model of the company’s financial functioning and later, on the basis of the analysis of financial and business data and description of the situation, learn the impact of their decisions on the company’s key HR indicators in the areas:
- employee engagement
- employee satisfaction
- employee turnover
- employee competence
- recruitment effectiveness
- customer satisfaction
Players in their teams go through a collaborative strategy planning phase that may include, depending on the module, activities in the areas of:
- Employerbranding and recruitment
- Development and knowledge management
- Financial and nonfinancial motivation
- Redundancy and transfer of employees
- Change management andcommunication
- Cost-saving strategies
- Merging organizational cultures
Learn the best market strategies.
Improve your company's bottom line.
In each module, players are challenged by changing business conditions further constrained by short- and long-term costs, as well as time resources. After the trial decision phase, players have a chance to change their actions in order to present their final decisions. After each module, when the players see the effect of their decisions, i.e. the influence on the indicators and thus on the company’s financial result, there is time to discuss the winning strategy. The presenters give examples of best market practices, discuss selected strategies, and explain their impact on thebottom line.
Questions to be answered in the game, among others:
- What actions translate into employee engagement?
- How canthe development of employees, managers and talents be planned to be most effective for the organization?
- How can risks and threats be identified and communicated so that they do not adversely affect the company’s results?
- How can an employee branding policy be built to attract the most valuable employees from the market and not lose them?
- Where should savings be made and not made to retain a motivated, productive team?
- How can team cooperation ensure the implementationof strategy?
- Howcan a coherent culture and strategy ensure the competitive advantage and financial success of the company?
