Date: February 19, 2015
Location: The National Club, 303 Bay Street, Toronto
Time: 11:30 am Registration/ 12:00 pm Lunch and Presentation
Maximizing employee engagement is a top priority for organizations today, as the war for talent continues to intensify. If you conduct a Google search on the topic, you get anywhere from 2-5 million entries. This can leave leaders and organizations frustrated as to where to begin to address this challenge.
The Science of Employee Engagement will answer this question by providing an overview of the evidence surrounding the most effective motivational strategies. Using classic and cutting-edge research, this talk will look at the scientifically supported motivators of human performance and will provide ideas and tips that can be applied to the workplace. Rather than be proscriptive, Craig will provide a framework which each attendee can reference to develop and introduce empirically-supported activities and initiatives within their respective areas. Whether leading a small team, large division, or an entire organization, participants will leave with many valuable ideas to transform their workplace.
