Washington, D.C. — September 14, 2011 — The Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global association for strategic talent management, announced today the presentation findings of a Signature Research on the impact of employee engagement on retention. The findings were revealed as part of the 2011 HCI Engagement and Retention conference held in Chicago, IL, and the research was developed in partnership with Lee Hecht Harrison (LHH).

The original research report on which this webcast will be based explores the topic of “Comprehensive Career Development as a Catalyst for Employee Engagement” and examines the relationship between career development strategies and employee engagement in the current economic environment and talent landscape. The research is built on the body of work centered on the impact that employee engagement can have on talent retention, organizational productivity, and overall performance. It uncovers true levers that affect employee engagement in the modern organization — namely career development and planning.

The webcast will air live on Wednesday, September 21, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. EST. Presenters will include Kristen Leverone, Senior Vice President and Practice Leader, Lee Hecht Harrison as well as Margo Armstrong, Assistant Vice President, MassMutual Financial Group. These women will discuss the report that describes the important impact that these economic changes have had on the talent landscape and provide recommendations for organizations to implement in order to enhance career development and therefore, ultimately increase employee engagement and retention. Recasts of the webcast will be available throughout the day on Thursday, September 22 and Friday, September 23.

The full report will be available for download on hci.org for all attendees and HCI members. Free registration for the webcast is available at: http://www.hci.org/lib/connecting-dots-comprehensive-career-development-catalyst-employee-engagement
