    Event Description:
    Statistics show that high Employee Engagement improves:
    • Revenue – engaged companies have 2.5X more revenue
    • Profitability – engaged companies have profitability rates that are 12% higher
    • Customer Retention – highly engaged companies customer retention rates are 18% higher
    • Employee Retention - Engaged employees are 87% less likely to leave a job, then their counterparts
    Companies in the US spent over $3 billion dollars on employee engagement last year, but engagement rates hardly improved and are only around 34%.

    So, what can you do to improve engagement? Actually, there is a lot that can be done to set up an environment that fosters employee engagement and retention.

    In this session, we will discuss the #1 misconception about employee engagement that cause many engagement efforts to be only partially effective.  We will present a different approach to engagement that focuses on practical steps for implementing influential leadership, and review the 5 Key Drivers of Employee Engagement (Vision, Independence, Growth, Outcome, Relationships).  You will leave with practical ways to engage and influence others, techniques you can start using right away.

    The session will include a self-assessment so you can gain clarity on areas that impact your employee engagement levels.
