Since a 2015 Gallup poll was published showing that just 32% of employees are engaged at work, there has been a flurry of commentary and questioning. How did that figure get so low? Just how engaged do employees need to be? Who is responsible for ensuring that they are? And just what does ‘engagement’ mean, anyway?

In this webinar, Donald Taylor, chairman of the Learning and Performance Institute, and Gordon Ritchie, Talent Framework evangelist, explore the key practices behind creating a culture that fosters engagement, with a plea to ignore superficialities like ping pong tables and bean bags and instead to focus on fundamental practices.

This webinar will cover:

  1.   Why engagement is not the same as happiness
  2.   The under-estimated role of management
  3.   Linking engagement to productivity
  4.   Three things that foster engagement – and one that kills it
  5.   Perks, fetishes and the reality of a truly engaging culture
