Employee engagement is critical to business success in the best of times, but it's even more important in a period of economic crisis. That's because the discretionary effort employees put forth could mean the difference between just surviving the recession and emerging poised for rapid growth.
Closing the Engagement Gap, a recently published book by two Towers Perrin executives, explores five keys to achieving high engagement and sustained discretionary effort: Know your employees; grow them; inspire them, involve them and reward them. Of these, inspiration is probably the least tangible and toughest to achieve. So how can you make sure this "special" ingredient is an integral part of your engagement strategy? Do your leaders and managers understand what it takes to inspire people through both words and deeds? How does inspiration become a way of life in your organization?
This webcast will focus on practical actions leaders can take to inspire people to perform to the best of their abilities, even during challenging economic times.
Experts will give real-world examples of how to build and sustain an emotional connection between employees and their companies, instill a sense of pride in employees and make sure they know they are valued in meaningful ways.
