Workplace Application:
You will learn how to design an engagement strategy on top of a business acumen foundation to get real meaningful results that directly impact your company's bottom line. 

Research published in Harvard Business Review found that 95% of employees are unaware of or do not understand their company's strategy. Our own research has found that the vast majority of employees, 90%, don't understand important business metrics. The results are workforces that are unaligned and disengaged. Here's the good news, as an HR leader, you're in a unique position to step up and solve this problem. In this session, you'll be introduced to the idea that the best places to work are in a virtuous cycle, and you'll be given practical steps for accelerating this cycle at your company. This session will help you:

  • Know what your CEO and CFO wish you'd talk more about.
  • Identify the top two levers of employee engagement.
  • Commit to three steps to link your people and profit strategies.
