Is Your Staff Truly Engaged?

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 like 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 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 22 May, 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
  • 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 Wednesday 22 May 2013 at 12pm BST for the lowdown
on the Engage for Success
