e-Seminar: The Relationship Comes First: Discovering the True Path to Employee Engagement
Presented By: Jason Lauritsen
Free Online Webinar
Work has been defined in many ways over the years: a contract, a transaction, a value exchange. This led to describing humans as capital and designing systems that treat people like assets to be managed and optimized. Is it any wonder that employees’ feeling of engagement within these organizations continues to drop? It doesn’t feel good to be treated like an investment to be maximized.
To reverse this trend requires that we understand what work is for employees--a relationship. Research has shown us that employees crave the same things from work that they do from other important relationships in their lives: appreciation, acceptance, communication, commitment, and support. In this session, we will explore how we can improve employee engagement and performance by making work feel more like a healthy relationship for employees.
Learning Objectives (Key Takeaways): At the end of this webinar you will be able to determine
- Dig into common employee engagement practices to discover why and how they are falling short by focusing on maximizing employee discretionary effort
- Learn that for employees, work is one of the most important relationships in their lives and it needs to be treated as a relationship rather than as a company process to be optimized
- Gain a deeper understanding of the elements that make for a healthy relationship and how to use this insight to create a more engaging and fulfilling experience for employees at work
