Creating an Engaging Work Culture: Fundamental Principles for Business Success in Turbulent Times

  • 19 Mar 2009
  • 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Rubbermaid/IRWIN

Speaker: Rick Schlentz

Why is the concept of engagement important?

  • Watson-Wyatt - definedcompanies with engaged employees outperform others by 47% to 202%
  • Hay Group - offices with engaged employees are 43% more productive
  • Gallop - engaged employees are 87% less likely to leave

Simply put, engagement is the ability to capture the souls, hearts, and minds of people to instill an intrinsic desire and passion for excellence.  It means creating a culture where employees are intellectually and emotionally tied to the company vision.  Engaged team members are loyal, committed, creative, and innovative.  They are also more productive than their disengaged counterparts and deliver high-level customer service while positivity impacting the bottom-line.  This fun, energetic and interactive workshop will focus on the fundamental principles that successful organizations apply in order to create and foster engaging cultures.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the need for leaders who have the courage to create and foster organizations where employees are fully engaged
  • Discuss the benefits to having an engaged work place
  • Uncover fundamental skills necessary for leaders, at all levels, to build a committed and loyal work force
