Why Attend

Employee engagement is not just an HR issue, it is primarily a business challenge that modern organizations are increasingly facing. According to Gallup International only 29% of employees are engaged in their work, 55% are not, and 16% are actively disengaged. The cost of employee disengagement is enormous, Gallup puts it at $470 billion per year for the US economy. As such, employee engagement and retention becomes a top priority for modern organizations who want to compete in the market, increase their market share and achieve higher returns on investment. In this course, you will learn what employee engagement is all about, design appropriate surveys to measure it, and most importantly craft and implement successful engagement initiatives that impact overall business performance.
