The How to of Employee Engagement

 Grow not only Leaders but Leadership

 The greatest source of inefficiency for most organisations lies in working relationships

  • 75+% of people leave jobs because of relationship issues
  • A typical manager loses 25% of his/her day to unnecessary conflict
  • Only 30% of people trust their bosses

Despite billions being spent on leadership, we keep on having the same old costly people problems - conflict, mistrust, low morale and disengagement.

 This is an old problem that requires a new approach, a different style of leadership, a culture that breeds openness, trust and engagement.

 Shay McConnon will give you practical ways to create the culture of engagement where staff are happy, engaged, well led and productive. He specialises in mind set and behaviour change i.e. bringing about the change rather than talking about it – transformation rather than information.

 The business case for employee engagement has been made, but people struggle to create it. Shay will share with you his approach for a multi-generational workplace. He will give you practical examples and tools you can use immediately to engage your staff and get them taking ownership for their issues. Shay gives you not only the Why and the What, but the How to for creating the workplace of the future, now.

 Learn how to embed the What am I going to do? not What is management going to do? mind-set and the difference this has made to the culture of Siemens, Qatar Airways, CERN, Heineken, Environment Agency and others.

 This practical, hands-on session will enable you to achieve

 Higher levels of staff engagement

  • More ownership from everyone
  • Happier, more productive people
  • Reduced absenteeism and attrition
  • Higher profitability

Best of all, this change is driven by individuals, not management. It will equip your people to manage their working relationships and to make their place of work an even better place to work.

CIPD Kent Branch

We are the Kent branch of CIPD - the professional body for HR and people development. The not-for-profit organisation champions better work and working lives and has been setting the benchmark for excellence in people and organisation development for more than 100 years.

 

We have a wide range of organisations and CIPD membership and we respond to this with a full selection of CPD and networking opportunities.

 

Due to the geographical spread of the county we have 3 area groups – Mid Kent, West Kent and East Kent. Between them they regularly hold sessions with guest speakers on subjects requested by the members. Most events are supported by local companies who host the events and provide an opportunity to meet other HR practitioners.

 

We also appreciate the specialisms within HR and have Special Interest Groups that meet regularly and occasionally have speakers. These groups include Health and Social Care and Senior Practitioners. Similarly we have smaller bespoke groups, Self Managed Learning Groups that operate throughout the county. These include the Coaching Groups in East Kent and West Kent. We  encourage the creation of new groups so if there is not an area covered, why not set one up?

 

Join our LinkedIn group, follow us on Twitter, like our Facebook page, or sign up to our emails for the latest news and events information.

 

Come along to an event and meet our friendly and welcoming committee members and the wonderful HR community of Kent!
