Struggling to engage your staff?

Each working day your employees come into the
office and work diligently to keep your customers happy, but are you sure
you’re making them feel a valued and vital asset to the business?  Have you honestly taken a moment to step back
and take a look at whether you’re truly engaging your staff?

We all know that if staff feel undervalued
and are not given the opportunity to develop their skills, they will become
unmotivated and disinterested in the business, with performance levels and
productivity suffering as a result.

Research published last month by the Engage
for Success task force reported that the UK can deliver £26billion GDP growth
by better engaging employees at work.

Join an Engage for Success webinar led by David
MacLeod on 24 January 2013.

David MacLeod chairs this task force, and
believes that 20 million workers are not working at full capacity because
employers are not actively engaging them. During the webinar he will
demonstrate how employee engagement can make a huge difference and be key in the long term prosperity of your business.

David will
cover the following points:

  • Why employee engagement is such a hot topic;
    what are the bigger changes in people’s attitudes and the nature of work that
    employee engagement is a response to.
  • What the difference is between transactional
    engagement and transformational engagement.
  • What four things are present in organisations
    that really engage their people.

We look forward to welcoming you to this
discussion, so don’t forget to join us on Thursday 24 January 2013 at 12pm GMT for
the lowdown on the Engage for Success
movement. Register
