Employee Engagement Check-In: An Interactive Session

Presented by: Ultimate Software — Senior Facilitator, Leadership Development, Regent Cornell

Although it takes many forms, employee engagement is one of the most impactful aspects of running a successful—or unsuccessful—business. Thus, it’s important for organizations of all sizes and industries to routinely “check-in” on employee engagement levels, through informal conversations among managers and direct reports, company wide employee surveys, department town halls, and more. This interactive session includes two components. First, we’ll check in on the status of employee engagement in attendees’ organizations and discuss current scenarios. Then, we’ll break off into smaller groups to brainstorm effective ways of addressing common engagement challenges in the workplace. Workshop attendees will leave with actionable insights for improving engagement and making a positive overall impact at their organizations.
