OVERVIEW

    Talent drives organizational success, and decades of research have proven that an engaged workforce is the foundation for business success. An engaged workforce drives: 

    • Financial performance
    • Employee productivity 
    • Innovation
    • Strategic goal achievement
    • Customer service
    • Recruitment and retention of talent

    The working environment created by the coronavirus has permanently changed the workplace. In particular,  employees across the nation are reevaluating their job and career goals. One result is the “great resignation” which has changed the workplace landscape and created intense competition to attract and retain talent. How do we meet this unprecedented management challenge? What lessons have we learned from the COVID-19 workplace, including the crucial challenge of how to maintain employee engagement?

Why Should You Attend?

    COVID-19 has dramatically and permanently changed the world of work, intensifying the competition to attract and retain talent. Organizations that do not adapt to this new work environment will not be competitive for talent. Their employees will vote with their feet, taking their knowledge, skills and abilities to organizations that have created a culture of employee engagement.
     
    To meet this unprecedented challenge, leaders need to focus on building employee engagement. High-engagement organizations outperform low-engagement organizations, and that’s why we need to understand how to build and maintain high-engagement workforces, including in the new workplace.
