Employee Engagement in Asia-Pacific: The Key to Retaining Critical Talent
Designed for Conference Board members in Asia-Pacific and India, this series examines how the "war for talent" extends beyond competing effectively for future talent – it also requires a workplace that supports retaining and motivating employees who work in critical roles. Understanding the dynamics of employee engagement as it relates to employees in the most critical roles is vital to corporate survival and growth. The program features ongoing research by The Conference Board on its globally valid method of measuring drivers of engagement and how a company’s employee value proposition can be linked to these important employee needs.

Retaining "critical talent", especially in time of economic uncertainty combined with rapid growth, depends on two important factors: the Employee Value Proposition (EVA) that targets important needs for key employees, and Employee Engagement (EE), the level to which employees feel connected to a company. This first session will focus on Employee Engagement and what we know about its drivers in companies globally and in Asia in particular. We will look at the results of unique research conducted by The Conference Board, and review current best practices in the area of EE for critical employees. The goal of this session is to help companies in Asia identify, monitor and understand the dynamics of employee engagement with this vital segment of your workforce.
