Increasing Employee Engagement

Employee engagement has been a hot topic for the last several years.  Research shows that the number one reason an employee leaves a company is the direct relationship he/she has with their boss.  The ability to actively and genuinely engage employees creates empowerment, openness and trust, clarification of direction and feedback on performance.  The manager is in a pivotal position to influence an employee’s perception of the organization from the hiring process through retirement or change of jobs.  This workshop will explore what engagement is, what drives engagement, and skills that managers can employee throughout an employee life cycle to improve organizational performance.
