Employee engagement is one of those “buzz terms” that is easily thrown around but not so easily attained. So just what is employee engagement, what are its benefits to both the employee and the organization and how do you create a workforce that is engaged and stays that way?

This program examines why an engaged workforce is important and how to achieve it. We’ll explore engagement as a means of retaining employees, positively impacting morale, fostering creativity and innovation and improving performance.

Focal points include: 

  • Defining employee engagement. 
  • Making the case for an engaged workforce. 
  • The impact of culture. 
  • Loosening the reins: delegation; empowerment; autonomy.
  • Voice and dignity: seeing employees as valued resources. 
  • Creativity and innovation keys. 
  • Motivation models.  
  • Team structures that work.

You’ll take stock of your workplace culture and will identify simple steps to begin the path to engagement. Above all, you will leave this program understanding what must happen to change a buzz term to reality.
