The world of work is becoming increasingly complex and competitive due to ever-changing technology, globalization, environmental concerns, resource constraints, and a host of other issues. At the same time, the labor force is shrinking as a result of shifting generational patterns and a widening skills gap. This combination of variables has created an unprecedented set of dynamics – a perfect storm – in almost every business environment. In the face of the dynamic tension caused by these factors, attracting and retaining top talent is of critical importance. This workshop will explore how companies can respond strategically by turning up the volume on engagement.
Through participation in this interactive session, participants will be able to:
- connect business and personal strategic challenges to the need to focus on engagement
- describe the elements of the current business environment that are coming together to create the strategic imperative for engagement
- describe the role of the manager in creating and supporting a high-engagement work culture
- take specific action to strengthen elements of engagement in their sphere of influence
- identify aspects of the organization’s culture that can be strengthened or enhanced to turn up the volume on engagement
- identify opportunities for personal development related to turning up the volume on engagement.
Participants will leave the session armed with an understanding of the strategic backdrop, a useful conceptual model, a set of sample strategies and a handful of specific actions for turning up the volume on engagement in the arenas where they work.
