In the past three years, massive layoffs and restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, government bailouts and regulations, geo-political turmoil and natural disasters have taken their toll on employee psyches. Particularly acute in the developed markets of the West, financial pressures at home and increased workloads in the office can impact employees—the lucky ones who remain employed—in terms of focus, productivity, teamwork, and innovation. Those remaining employees at companies in “survival mode” face additional pressures: constant change, 24/7 accessibility, heightened production goals, a frenetic pace, shortened innovation cycle have impacted people and organizations… a perfect storm for disengagement and burnout.
Engagement has seldom been more critical to business performance. In this broadcast, we’ll share recent research from both The Conference Board and the Gallup Organization and hear from practitioners who will share the specific challenges, actions and successes as they look to raise levels of employee engagement in the today’s workplace.
Joining Rebecca for our November webcast will be Jessica Tyler, Ed.D., Practice Leader, Employee Engagement and Wellbeing, Gallup Organization, Karen Fowler-Williams, Senior Vice President, Employee Relations & EEO, Lincoln Financial Group, Jim Hauden, Chief Executive Officer, Root Learning, and Joseph Toto, Senior Fellow, Human Capital, The Conference Board.
