State of the American Workforce
Employee engagement is tremendously important– yet it remains a challenge for many organizations.
Employee engagement is like sending a man to the moon. There is a lot of work, involved, it takes time, and lots of people behind the scenes to be committed to the project and sometimes there is an explosion, but when we get it right - it is such a win! Organizations need to work past parties & potlucks to a deeper level - meaningful, growth, belonging, achievement and recognition. Join Darleen Lenyo as she explains how Crescent Bank is achieving this by hosting town hall meetings, chatting with the CEO videos where employees ask questions and gain valuable insights. Engagement begins in the orientation process connecting the employee’s work responsibility to the organization’s vision and goals for the year, creating a sense of community, and recognizing achievements.
Darleen will explore ways to increase employee engagement using Gallup and other recent data to create strategy and execute an effective plan.
In this engaging and interactive session, attendees will:
- Look for what data to analyze both externally and internally
- Learn who is more important to employee engagement success (it is not C Suite)
- Simple tools to create a winning strategy using OKR (objectives & key results)
- Determine what's important to track and highlight
- And most importantly, how to execute that strategy
