Employee engagement is a necessary strategy for companies that want to succeed in the marketplace. Employee engagement is not an HR initiative that managers are reminded to do once a year. It is a key strategic driver of employee performance, accomplishment, and continuous improvement all year long. It is the outcome of how your organisation interacts with people to drive business results.
This one day training course is suitable for anyone that works in a management or leadership role.
Engagement is a heightened emotional connection that an employee feels for his organisation, which influences them to put in greater effort. Higher engagement levels yield higher productivity and retention rates. This makes employee engagement a powerful factor in business success. Engaged employees are more productive, customer-focused, and profit-oriented and organisations are more likely to retain them.
An essential part of an organisation’s talent management strategy is its focus on employee engagement and retention. Organisations that maintain this focus create an environment where employees have the tools, resources, and professional opportunities to develop skills and fulfill their career goals.
This course aims to help highlight the requirements that managers and leaders have to help improve the engagement of employees, while giving them key tools and supporting content to ensure they are prepared to deliver on employee engagement within the organisation.
