Understanding Employee Engagement: It's More Than a Survey
Presenter: Jennifer Leake
An alarming 70% of employees are not working to their full potential, and many are either not engaged or actively disengaged. According to Gallup, these employees are emotionally disconnected and may actually be working against their employer’s best interest. Engaged employees are more productive, less likely to steal or negatively influence co-workers, have lower absenteeism and contribute more to company good will and customer service. Gallup also reports actively disengaged employees cost the U.S. at least $450 billion in lost productivity per year.
After participating in this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Better understand employee engagement and its effect on employee retention strategies and practices.
- Factors that affect employee engagement and ways to improve it.
- The impact of the disengaged, especially executives, on your organization.
- 8 Key Best practice suggestions to improve employee engagement in your organization.
