Getting to the Heart of Employee Engagement
Presented by:
Les Landes
Landes & Associates

During the economic downturn, many employees were told the only way to survive and keep their jobs was by going "the extra mile" and doing "more with less." Those days have come to an end. Surveys show that employees are burned out and fed up. Organizations that want to attract and retain top talent in this shifting climate will need a more serious and systematic approach to getting employees fully engaged in boosting performance.

In this presentation, Les Landes will reveal critical keys to keeping employees tuned in, turned on and eager to go the extra mile. He will offer thought-provoking ideas on how to foster a trust-based workplace by tapping into the uniquely human qualities of imagination and free will, using the right mind-set, the right heart-set and the right kind of people-first systems and processes to heighten employee engagement and alignment.

What participants will take away from this presentation:
  • A deeper appreciation for how improved employee engagement strengthens bottom-line results
  • Understanding the "why" of human nature in the workplace, and how to propel the "human rocket" of performance
  • A team-driven mechanism for joint constructive accountability
  • How to get "real" with the kind of communication that makes a genuine connection with employees
  • Measuring what matters to employees
  • An alternative to ineffective employee suggestion programs that creates a "habit" for continuous improvement
  • How to pinpoint and close gaps between the current culture and the culture required to boost employee engagement and performance
