2022 EmployER Engagement & Retention Master Class: Cohort 2 | Myths and Opportunities - On-Demand

Now Available On-Demand.

Program Length: 4 hours

There are many fundamental changes in the way we work today. Millions of jobs are open due to the millions of workers who are leaving voluntarily.  Employers are uncertain as to how to attract enough employees and often confused about why employees stay or why they quit. There has never been a more important time to rethink our understanding and our approach to employee retention and engagement.

Based on the bestselling book, EmployER Engagement – The Fresh and Dissenting Voice on the Employment Relationship, this Master Class aims to challenge the status quo on how we think about attraction, engagement, and retention in today’s extremely competitive marketplace. With today’s hyper-competitive U.S. job market, employees have the power in deciding where they chose to work. Because of these market conditions, it is necessary for organizations to engage their employees, rather than expect employees to engage with their organization.

Danny Nelms, President of Work Institute and Kim Nowell, Principal and Founder at KWaN Partners, deliver an interactive, thought provoking, and ultimately game changing program that will give you a new perspective on engaging and retaining your employees. Through active dialogue, breakout groups, and hands on activities, you'll learn from your peers and our expert presenters as you explore strategies and real-world applications for employee engagement.

In the next installment of this 4-part series, Nelms and Nowell will discuss the myths and opportunities surrounding employee attraction, engagement, and retention. Come with your most pressing challenges and leave with expert strategies and peer-based solutions. You won't want to miss this valuable peer-networking opportunity!

This cohort will provide:

  • A brief recap about today's market conditions and why they now demand that we take a closer look at how we manage employee engagement and retention in your organization.
  • Key takeaways from peer breakout groups to get you up to speed on what was discussed in the last cohort.
  • The flaws and myths in the current thinking related to attraction, retention, and employee engagement.
  • And more!

If you missed this last event, catch up on demand!
