Employee Engagement in Difficult Times

Workshop Overview

Employee engagement is currently a top strategic initiative for a majority of companies and organizations around the world. It is a major contributor to achieving both organizational and individual well being. As well as improving performance and productivity, employee engagement impacts positively on absenteeism, retention, innovation, customer service, and other key outcomes (Engage for Success, Nailing the Evidence, 2012).

Yet we struggle to create robust and authentic employee engagement. Some organizations have failed to move beyond a disengaging bi-annual survey while other organizations believe it is important but don’t know where to begin or how to proceed. Some organizations have been working with engagement but their approaches have gone fl at or are not achieving the intended results.

This workshop will help you and your organization improve and increase employee engagement so that you are not left behind. You will be equipped to take a leadership role in leveraging employee engagement for strategic success.

We have progressed from the why of employee engagement to the ways and methods to improve engagement. This is an ideal course whether you are in the contemplation or initial stages of engagement or you have been conducting employee engagement surveys and interventions for a number of years. David’s primary model for work with employee engagement is the 10-block pyramid of employee engagement.
