Managing Talent - The Engaged Employee (Part 3)
Course # 593
There is growing interest in employee engagement, and with good reason. Engaged employees are more productive, more positive and more motivated about the work that they do. Unfortunately, 21% of employees today identify themselves as highly disengaged, a three-fold increase since 2007. (The Corporate Executive Board, Employee Engagement Study, 2010). In this session, we will explore what drives and influences employee engagement, and discuss the things leaders can do to create an environment where engagement can flourish.
- Define employee engagement and explain its impact in the workplace;
- List the factors that can support employee engagement;
- Identify the signs of disengagement; and
- Develop plans and strategies that can increase employee productivity and morale.
