Expert advice from leading engagement professional
According to Global Human Capital Trends 2015 published by Deloitte University Press, 87% of organisations cite culture and engagement as one of their top challenges, and 50% call the problem “very important.” This is a new and systemic problem for organisations worldwide. Why has it become so important?
It's common knowledge that engaged employees are much less likely to leave their organisation, are more productive and take less sick days that their disengaged colleagues. If you don't invest in engaging your workforce the costs can add up, just the cost of replacing an employee can be up to 150% of the leaver’s salary!
Employee engagement and culture are now business issues, not just topics for HR to debate. And there’s no place for organizations to hide. So come and learn how to improve employee engagement in your organization.
The summit will offer valuable advice and answers from leading professionals and experts and will feature best practice case studies and strategies aiming at embedding cost effective and proven engagement initiatives to boost your employees an engagement level and increase their work potential.
