Event description

Description

The UK has an employee engagement problem. Only 20% of the working population are actively engaged, with the same percentage being actively disengaged. And the remainder? They can be summed up in a single word, ‘Whatever.’ Engagement is a term we all know but few can really define it, so what is it all about, and so what? This seminar will remove the ambiguity of ‘employee engagement’ and turn it into your competitive advantage by using real terms, real evidence and realistic solutions by considering:

• What engagement actually is
• With concrete real-life examples from the corporate world, we will build a business case for engagement and the bottom-line impact an engaged workforce can bring
• ‘Carrot or stick?’ what comes first engagement or performance?
• How engagement is typically measured, and the pitfalls that often arise
• 8 tangible areas that are proven to increase the engagement of the workforce.

The session will conclude with a real-life case study about a home care service provider by the CIPD Gloucestershire Branch Chairman, with an opportunity to work in small groups to put the learning into practice.

By the end of the seminar you will have the information to build an action plan to improve engagement, how to better measure it and, know how to justify its value.

This session is one of our regular quarterly meetings for the Gloucestershire Learning & Development 'Special Interest Group'. The subject of Employee Engagement was recently voted by the Group as one of the top issues for the coming year; however, this event is also open to anyone, in addition to L&D professionals, who wants to hear more about this hot topic.
