Research over the last 10 years has consistently confirmed that employee engagement is related to both the willingness of employees to make an extra effort to do their work as well as possible and also to their desire to stay with their employer through thick and thin. Research has also shown that financial performance is positively impacted by employee engagement.
The real question for executives is this: What are the optimal levers for driving employee engagement and can organizations actually "manage" employee engagement?
This webinar will provide answers to these questions based on the research of The Conference Board and Louis Allen Worldwide. John Gibbons, Senior Research Advisor, will summarize The Conference Board's ground-breaking research over the last three years on this topic. Central to this research has been development of a global, culture-neutral instrument that measures employee engagement and, in addition, measures key drivers of employee engagement.
JP Miller, PhD, CEO of Louis Allen Worldwide, will overview the findings his firm has uncovered through their extensive international research into the leadership and management practices that drive engagement. By looking at cross-cultural data sets, LAW has identified different strategies that can be applied in different situations. Insights into what are likely to be effective strategies emerge from their findings.
