Enterprise Engagement – Seminar Overview:
§ How engaged are your employees? According to statistically valid research from Gallup, Sirota and other leading engagement research companies, only 30% of a typical company’s employees are engaged and more than 70% are disengaged to actively-disengaged. This lack of commitment, energy and discretionary effort translates into lower productivity, more errors, less innovation and urgency and as a result, reduced channel partner and customer loyalty. To create a culture of engagement, it is necessary for companies to foster a culture of camaraderie and trust, which will lead to higher levels of productivity, innovation, sales and profits. The EEA has created the Engaged Company Stock Index (ECSI) which proves that companies with high engagement scores outperform the S&P 500 by 17.5% and Towers Perrin research shows that high-engagement firms have an EPS growth rate of 28%, low engagement firms see an EPS decline at rate of 11.2% and committed employees deliver 57% more effort than non-committed ones. Ira will present the latest research from the EEA and leading engagement companies, along with the roadmap necessary for you to create an Engagement Business Plan for your company. Learn how the best practices companies create cultures of engagement and enjoy superior sales, profits, innovation, productivity and loyalty compared with peer companies. Each attendee will be given the opportunity to run a free engagement assessment for their company.
