About the course
Engaged workers are the lifeblood of organizations – driving innovation, growth, and revenues. Is your organization creating a culture of engagement?
Why Employee engagement matters:
- Engaged employees can create a competitive advantage for organizations.
- According to Gallup, 70% of U.S. workers are "not engaged" or "actively disengaged." Globally, nearly 90% of employees are not engaged.
- Recent events have changed the state of the workplace. Organizations have had to become more creative and flexible as they seek to accomplish organizational goals with the same or fewer resources.
- Leaders are finding that they have to play multiple roles -- supervisor, role model, mentor, motivator -- to four generations of workers, through face-to-face encounters and in the virtual office.
