Employee engagement is improving, disengagement is dropping, and the drivers of employee engagement have continued to shift since the end of the recession. These are just a few of the highlights from Modern Survey's U.S. Workforce Employee Engagement Study.
Every six months Modern Survey conducts a random sample study of full-time workers to determine the State of Employee Engagement. Join Modern Survey's President, Don MacPherson, as he reveals the findings from the March 2014 study.
The webinar will show how engagement levels are trending in a positive direction and explore the reasons why that is happening. Employee disengagement, which is at its lowest point since this study was started in 2007, will be looked at as well.

In this session, Howard M. Guttman shares his research findings on the inner workings of 25-high-performance teams that cut across industries and vary in size from large to small companies. For example: Colgate, Johnson & Johnson, Mars Inc., Novartis, and L’Oreal.
Howard Guttman isolates the key attributes and related behaviors of high-performance teams, and in the process, challenges prevailing notions of team leadership, membership, accountability, decision making, and conflict, replacing them with a fresh, horizontal approach to achieving ever-higher levels of results.
The session also explores the dynamics of team behavior and how to move around the “Team Development Wheel,” from Stage One testing to Stage Four high performance. Howard Guttman explores the mind set and skill shifts that are required, along with an agreement on protocols, those rules of the road that govern decision making and team-member behavior.
Now there is a way for leaders at all levels to develop unwavering optimism, personal magnetism, and unshakeable sense of self-confidence to make remarkable results happen.
When you LEAD POSITIVE you zoom in on what is strong, valuable, and possible. What you see, say, and do inspires those around you to walk together toward a new positive direction. While conventional approaches focus on showing leaders how to acquire industry expertise, strategic capability, and operational savvy, LEAD POSITIVE is an internal development process that zeros in on transforming what the leader sees, says, and does. In short, this approach helps leaders to shift internally so they can excel externally.
During this hour-long webinar, Dr. Kathy Cramer, author of Lead Positive: What Highly Effective Leaders See, Say, and Do and founder of Asset-Based Thinking, will present recent findings in neuroscience and positive psychology together with the experiences of exemplary leaders to make these motivational leadership strategies come alive.
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.
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.
