The average HR Professional has to deal with nine different platforms and initiatives tackling a host of important areas such as Engagement, Wellness, Diversity and Inclusion, Training, Performance, and Risk Management. Even if all these areas are done well, they remain fragmented and siloed: Each has their own language, workflow, and assessment that collectively exhausts us and our employees.
Imagine, instead, you had a single core model that improved all of these areas simultaneously. One that is quickly understood, precisely measured, and easily acted upon. And imagine it had decades of independent and scientific data backing up its value and effectiveness that you could put in front of your leaders?
This session will review such a cornerstone model. Based on 40 years of behavioral science research and applied organizational work, you’ll take away key ideas and concepts to drive strategy, build more effective measurements, and win buy-in from everyone across your organization.
When you think of typical approaches to engagement, what do you think of? Most strategies presented to me consist of external inducements: things like cash bonuses, reward and recognition systems, and one-off manager trainings that have been around for decades. Organizations have simply spent too much time thinking of ways to externally influence employees into doing what they desire and too little time tapping into the natural drivers of engagement. We need to let go of our transactional approach to engagement and instead focus on a more authentic, employee-centered approach.
