Employee engagement activities are more than a 21st Century buzzword – it is a real issue for today’s employers. There are many factors for considering the business case for employee engagement. With the continuing retirement of one of the largest generations – the Baby Boomers – there is a tremendous risk of brain drain from organizations. And, successor generations have alternative views of work and different expectations of employers. This webinar will help employers, business owners and HR executives prepare for the talent shortages created by Baby Boomers retiring, while simultaneously creating a work environment to inspire new leaders to replace those retiring. Tips for creating a succession plan will also be discussed.

The webinar will also provide examples of “symptoms” of disengagement and strategies for transforming disengagement into engagement. The key ingredients of job satisfaction will be discussed. Case studies of organizations who have successfully reduced turnover through successful engagement strategies will be discussed.

why should you attend

Baby boomer retirements and high turnover are challenges to organizations because of the high costs of turnover, training and risk of losing customers or clients. Therefore, it makes sense to look at offsetting these direct and indirect costs through enhanced engagement strategies. By learning how to create a work environment that inspires employees to achieve optimum productivity, organizations can soar to success.
