2010 Engagement and Retention Conference

It's Time for a Reset on Employee Engagement.

We all know the statistics and see the crisis looming. Less than half of employees are engaged in their jobs. Over 50 percent of HR professionals, and over 80 percent of employees expect turnover to rise. Companies are losing up to 50% of their productivity due to the lack of engagement in their workforce today. And right now, the high performer you are counting on to drive your organization’s next innovation is probably reconnecting with college pals on LinkedIn, looking for their next career move.

Research, Case Studies and Great New Ideas

The old top-down, HR-owned and operated approaches to engagement are not working in this climate, and they probably won’t ever work again. A note from the CEO to “pump up the troops,” is likely to be met with a skeptical yawn, and the engagement survey you are counting on to show your engagement gaps will take too long to have effect. Generous pay increases and fast career tracks remain in short supply.

But new, innovative and effective engagement strategies are being discovered and implemented successfully, including ways to empower the workforce, help them re-engage on their own terms, customizing conventional wisdom to fit unique situations, and leveraging technology in new and exciting ways.

HCI’s 2010 Engagement and Retention Conference will offer the best and brightest new ideas to help meet these challenges. You will find new research, powerful case studies, and exciting new ideas, not only from HR leaders, but from line executives and high performing employees as well. You will learn from the most challenged industries, who have been forced to innovate new approaches to employee engagement, and who have overcome the challenges we all face today.
