Spring Webinar

Connection Culture: Boosting Employee Engagement

Wednesday, May 6, 2015 | 11:00 AM CDT

In the average organization three out of 10 employees are engaged, while in the best organizations the number climbs to six or more. The low rate of engagement hasn't budged in more than a decade. Why? Employee engagement surveys and programs are not enough. Higher engagement is rooted in a culture whose language, attitudes and behaviors make people feel connected to one another rather than feel unsupported, left out or alone. Employees in an organization with a high degree of connection are more productive, more engaged, more collaborative, and less likely to leave. In fact, research demonstrates that there is a set of learnable leadership behaviors that can ignite the workforce so individuals do more than survive – they thrive.
