Pam Kennett – “Why employee engagement doesn’t work”
In today’s knowledge economy we need to understand how to get the best out of our employees and our teams as quickly as possible. Organisations today are rightly focusing on how best to engage and motivate their employees to deliver great performance. And yet, engagement levels remain stubbornly low. We need to radically rethink how we motivate our staff to identify new ways to engage with our employees and get more meaning out of our work.
This session is a thought provoking and practical exploration of the issues facing organisations today. It is aimed at senior business leaders and consultants who need to get the best out of their staff now and provides answers to questions about how to engage with staff and how to get more meaning and satisfaction from work. We draw from neuroscience and psychology for inspiration as well as learn from the world’s best companies including Zappos, Google and Microsoft. When we implement these strategies we become more creative, better decision makers, more supportive colleagues, more productive employees and are less stressed.
The outcomes of this session are:
- Clarity about what motivates employees and how to get the best out of them
- Proven, implementable strategies to motivate and engage employees such as playing to strengths, focusing on the positive
- Leading to greater creativity, better team working, decision making and performance outcomes and reduced stress.
