We’ll start by covering some of the research that clearly shows the positive effect of learning on business performance, especially in companies that have established a strong learning culture.
Next, we’ll look at the benefits enjoyed by organizations that invest in technology-enabled learning.
Finally, we’ll examine some of the trends in workplace learning and the factors that are driving a higher investment in it by many organizations.
The importance of learning
The world has changed; there is no more “business as usual” due to the economic strain of the past few years. According to the McKinsey Global Institute, there will be a severe gap in talent because 360 million workers will retire from the global labor force by 2030. This leaves big talent gaps and the need for a skilled workforce that only comes with a solid learning program.
Engaged employees stay put. According to Gallup’s latest Q12 meta-analysis of 1.4 million employees, the most engaged companies experience up to 65 percent lower turnover than the least engaged—that’s a huge savings of time, money, and effort. Yet with fewer than 1 in 3 employees feeling engaged, what can you do to reap those savings for yourself?
In this webinar, Achievers’ Vice President of Employee Success, Cheryl Kerrigan, explains how to retain employees with the four pillars of engagement: recognition, feedback, communication, and meaning.
You’ll also learn:
How recognition aligns employees to company goals
How lack of feedback from leadership leads to turnover
Why employees need clear communication and to have their voices heard
The important of stretch opportunities and career goals to give their work meaning

How often have you heard: “I wish my boss would take this training!” Most first-time leaders lack formal leadership experience and are often left to sink or swim without strong role models or much help from their direct boss. How can you build the skills of managers so they can better support the development of their direct reports? How can you gain buy-in and involve them to help model and reinforce skills to boost “stickiness”? Join this webcast where we’ll present ways managers can engage, excite, and encourage leadership development, as well as steps to build shared responsibility and accountability between the leader and his or her manager.
Do your employees report a sense of purpose at your organization? Do they trust senior management and have confidence that the organization is moving in the right direction? Does everyone -- from the CEO on down -- feel like they are contributing to the company’s success?
These are some of the hallmarks of a culture of engagement. Sadly, the majority of employees – over 60% - in the United States are under engaged or disengaged. This webinar will look at how organizations can address and boost engagement and how human resources can serve as the important catalyst in making this happen.
Every action an employee takes has the opportunity to either reinforce or diminish your brand. When HR and marketing join together, employees can become brand ambassadors and ultimately help create brand distinction in the marketplace.
An organization’s employees are its best brand ambassadors. They have the power to move the organization forward and make the brand live and breathe. There are no two ways about it, engaged employees build strong brands! The benefits of a strong brand are tremendous and all the best leaders realize that strong brands are not built by the marketing department alone they need HR in order to be successful.
In this session, we will hear from Patricia Nazemetz and Will Ruch, co-authors of “HR and Marketing Power Partners,” as well as executives at top global companies who have implemented a partnership between HR and marketing and discovered the impact it has on customer loyalty, business growth, talent acquisition and retention.

In the midst of operating in a world best described as VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous), your leaders are facing increasing demands from all directions: employees, shareholders, customers, the C Suite and beyond.

Learn how to apply what we know about the brain to quickly build the agility your current and future leaders need to stay ahead in today's complex business environment. This practical, engaging and interactive webinar will give you an easy-to-apply system and tools to help you align your leadership development strategies with the growing need for agility.

The research is definitive; engaged employees are more productive. So, how do you engage employees? It is simple, through authentic leadership. An authentic leader has the passion and capability to transparently engage, motivate and move people toward the achievement of shared goals. There is considerable information that describes authentic leadership but, precious little about how to develop and demonstrate it. To guide your development of authentic leadership we assembled a three-part system called the Authentic Leadership Framework™ that includes- character, context and competency. With each of these components fully developed and demonstrated, your authentic leadership ability will engage employees, directly affecting the bottom line.
Highly engaged employees help to build and sustain a culture where people want to work and are excited to deliver great results. In return, employees have a positive impact on our relationships with customers, suppliers and communities. At Ingersoll Rand, they understand, appreciate and embrace their differences and use these strengths to continuously improve their business. In 2012, Ingersoll Rand rapidly deployed The Ingersoll Rand Leader: Engaging Your Employees (EYE) training to a global audience and found that leaders attending the training session had an increase in engagement scores two times higher than their counterparts who did not attend the program. To enhance the support the managers, the company also created an on-line and simple support site that highlighted just a few critical tools and activities managers could take, aligned with content from EYE. To leverage the leader’s role in engagement, they also worked to improve engagement by providing coaching to help managers engage employees on what matters most to them and focus local accountability to drive more tailored and meaningful actions.
In this session, learn more about Ingersoll Rand’s efforts to grow engagement, hear more about the crucial role played by leaders, and how their formula for success could be applied inside your organization.
