Unlocking People Performance through Innovation
In 2013, The Conference Board, Deloitte, and Sirota, came together to create a research community of practice engineered to advance the impact of engagement practices to drive business results within organizations around the globe. Now entering its fourth year, we are pleased to continue this trajectory by welcoming the 2017 group of Research Fellows.
- This research community of practice consists of cross-industry leaders who will partner with experts and work collaboratively to shape how organizations understand and drive engagement through a series of research activities and peer learning opportunities. Together, we will uncover new insights and develop new practices which drive continuous engagement improvement and quantifiable business impact.
