Driving an Engaged Culture through Leadership Accountability

In an era of greater corporate transparency, workforce mobility, and skills shortages, culture, engagement, and retention have emerged as top issues for business leaders. But these issues do not belong to HR alone.

Almost every survey from Deloitte, Gallup, and others, highlight the high priority of employee engagement for organizations — especially as a CEO pain point. But how much is leadership actively doing to lead this effort? Ultimately culture and employee engagement are a top down effort. Today "buy-in" for engagement initiatives isn’t enough to drive the change needed to drive real commitment and retention in an organization.

Engagement values must be "lived" by top management and clearly demonstrated in their behavior. While most leaders are measured on the basis of business results, organizations must begin holding leaders accountable for building a strong and sustaining culture, listening to feedback, and engaging and retaining their teams. Gallup findings indicate that when executive teams are highly engaged, the organization's managers are 39% more likely to be engaged. To sustain an engaged culture, executives and managers must share a vision that incorporates purpose, values, trust, and transparency — and they must live it every day.

It is up to HR to guide, coach, and provide the most effective tools to help leadership drive a value based culture. We must also "set the stage" by developing a workforce that is open, trusting, and directly connected to the success of the organization. Join us in Denver and learn through proven case studies, tools, and valuable resources how to develop engaged leaders and hold them accountable to sincerely connect to the workforce.
