Conventional wisdom says that the direct manager is the person who has the most responsibility for engaging employees. If that is the case, our direct managers are failing us miserably. According to Modern Survey’s Spring 2014 Study of U.S. Workforce Engagement, only 13% of employees are fully engaged with another 27% being moderately engaged. That leaves the remaining employees under engaged (36%) and disengaged (24%). Any CEO, HR professional, or business leader should look at these numbers with disgust.
The truth is that employee engagement is a shared responsibility. The organization plays a role. Leaders - both direct managers and senior leaders - have a responsibility. Finally, individual employees make choices about whether or not they will bring their best to work every day.
Getting employees to own their engagement makes a great deal of sense, but few organizations have gotten a handle on doing it right. This webinar will provide a pathway for how you can influence employees that engagement is not only their responsibility, becoming engaged is one of the most important things they can do to live happy, healthy, fulfilling lives.
During this webinar, Modern Survey's President, Don MacPherson, will share how to build a culture by getting every employee to own their engagement and sharing in the responsibility of motivating and engaging their teammates.
In addition, attendees will walk away with a clear understanding of how the organization makes engagement possible and how leaders can drive engagement within their teams.
If having an engaged workforce is critical to your organization's success, this is a webinar you don't want to miss!
Dr Tim Baker's new book - "Attracting and retaining Talent: Becoming and Employer of Choice" identified eight values that all employers of choice adhere to. These eight values are:
• flexible deployment,
• customer focus,
• performance focus,
• project-based work,
• human spirit and work,
• learning and development, and
• open information.
This presentation looks at the changing employment relationship and how that is the critical linchpin for creating an organizational culture that supports an employer of choice. Becoming an employer of choice is much more than a marketing slogan; it is fundamentally about creating a new culture that serves the changing needs and interests of employee and employer.
