Employee engagement has been a management topic for a few years. Evidence suggests that more effective engagement delivers improved performance and business success. How do you measure up when it comes to engagement and are your results what you expect? Where does your evidence come from? If you’re at all unsure, this workshop will explain how you can better understand, measure and plan for greater engagement in to help you create and execute your business plans.

Research suggests that many CEOs believe they are great at engaging their people, while their employees don’t believe they are engaged enough. That one word, enough, suggests that businesses are failing to offer the opportunity for people to bring their whole selves to work and that suggests a huge waste of their knowledge, skills, experience and talents in driving the business forward.

Go beyond the hackneyed phrase ‘people are our most important asset’ and delve into a deeper understanding of engagement and the benefits that it can bring for you the leader, for your people and for your business.
