Workplace Application: You will learn how to lead strategic conversations about employee engagement which create positive business results over time.

The employee engagement survey is complete and the results are in. Now the cascading goals start, managers complain, employees doubt that anything will happen… and the cycle of frustration continues. Stop the madness! In this session you will learn what it takes to create strategic focus and C-suite buy-in for engagement. At the end of the session, you will be able to state three key questions to drive strategic planning around employee engagement and will identify five focus areas as a guide to evaluate and create innovative ideas for strategic employee engagement.
