HR Event Preview: Total Employee Engagement Summit 2016
The Total Employee Engagement Summit 2016 will be held in Phoenix, Arizona, from September 19th to 21st and will focus on how to develop and maintain an engaged workforce.
Gallup recently reported that employee engagement levels stayed stagnant in 2015. They found that 32% of employees are engaged with their jobs, which is pretty much the same as it has been for the last 5 years. Organizations with an engaging onboard program retained 91% of their first-year workers (SHRM) and new hires. Those who went through a well-structured onboarding program were 69% more likely to remain at an organization up to three years (TalentWise).
Why is employee engagement important to your company? Engaged employees are willing to go beyond their assigned tasks. They regularly invest extra effort to accomplish the work, mission and vision of an organization. An engagement culture should be viewed as an everyday practice, rather than a transactional event.
By attending this event, you’ll get the chance to learn from leading experts about their real world experience in developing and maintaining an engaged workforce. Be part of the discussion on what to measure, when to measure it, how to ensure the insights go to the right people and how to make these insights actionable.
