Topic Synopsis:

HR plays a crucial role in ensuring leaders create an engaging and safe work environment. By joining this webinar, you will:
  • Learn my three-step process for increasing employee engagement, motivation, and, ultimately, your bottom line.
  • Receive the opportunity to share your challenges and receive direct and actionable advice on how to support your organization’s leaders.
  • Understand you are not alone but a key part of motivating your organization’s employees.

85% of employees worldwide are not engaged or are actively disengaged in their job. (Actively disengaged ‘means that employees aren’t just unhappy at work — they are resentful that their needs aren’t being met and are acting out their unhappiness.

Every day, these workers potentially undermine what their engaged coworkers accomplish.’) (Gallup). Studies show that the total cost of losing an employee can cost up to millions to 1.5-2x annual salary (Source). In a startup or smaller business, losing an employee can even be more devastating – imagine the time and energy needed to replace one. This webinar will introduce HR leaders to my three-step process to better engage and manage their team – increasing retention, productivity, and ultimately their bottom line.
