What is Employee Engagement and what can it do for me as a small business?

Venue: Derby, YMCA | Date: 27th April 2017 | Time: 17.30pm – 19.30pm

 

Just over a third of British staff are highly engaged at work, while 48 per cent claim to be only moderately engaged with the remainder having no or low engagement.

Most employers are following textbook employee engagement methods; however it’s the companies looking outside of these theories that create high engaged staff by enriching their lives and bringing colour to campaigns.

Most small companies believe that Engaging their employees is costly. With this insightful overview as well as tips on how to be an Employer of Choice we will give you information to take away that will get you started on engaging your workforce.

An Employer of Choice is put simply ‘An Employer that people choose to work for’. Every company, no matter how small, can choose to develop a great culture and be an Employer of Choice. We can show you how.
