An Invitation to Partner with TCB on Important Research
13 September, 2011 | (01 hr)
The case has been made that leaders can enhance the performance of their organizations by focusing on increasing levels of employee engagement. However, there is constant pressure in an organization to grow the business while limiting investments, and employees are stretched in terms of the quantity and quality of the work demanded of them. Conference Board members have asked us to research tested approaches to building employee engagement, even in times of resource constraint, and the connection between engagement, top talent retention, and amplified business results.
This October, The Conference Board will convene a Research Working Group (RWG) on effective approaches to building employee engagement. This research process will outline the specific organizational, executive and managerial actions that can be taken by line leaders and Human Capital professionals to achieve a variety of employee engagement-driven outcomes. Current participating companies include Caterpillar and Supervalu. This webcast will outline the issues to be addressed, the participation fee and the RWG process. There will be time for audience questions.
Research Working Groups are only available to member companies of The Conference Board and typically last six months. Two executives from each company partner with their peers and skilled researchers and to jointly review existing data and frameworks and generate new data as necessary. The RWG will result in a comprehensive overview that details findings, conclusions and recommendations for employers of all sizes and industries.
Audience: This webcast and Research Working Group will be of interest to executives responsible for the hiring, development and retention of talent who are exploring participation in the Research Working Group.
