That’s why I keep James front and center in my thinking as I go about my daily work to improve employee engagement within organizations. Good leaders (and communicators) know that organizational success happens when employees have a voice and buy in to the mission with heart as well as mind. They feel safe to “speak up,” knowing their opinions count and they make a difference.
In this webinar, I’ll deliver seven 007 employee engagement strategies that have hit the target for me and the organizations I’ve worked for.
- Learning Objective 1: Through a case study, attendees will learn about tools that help develop feedback via research which can then be used to outline employee perceptions/opinions and align them to business goals to accomplish your company’s goals
- Learning Objective 2: Share effective tactics that using a variety of forums including one way and two way communications and other venues. Demonstrate how the use of these tactics improved employee communications by 90% through an online newsletter, feedback by 30% from employee forums, and by another 30% through an Employee Recognition Campaign.
- Learning Objective 3: Learn techniques to engage employees to become more dedicated to your company’s mission through personal growth opportunities and by effectively using supervisor forums for open dialogue.
- In addition to these objectives, attendees will walk away with a 007, 7-point tip sheet with a with a link to references.
This course is designed for:
- Internal communications directors/specialists, public relations directors/specialists, supervisors and managers including those in human resources.
