    Engagement: Inspiring Employers to Rehumanize the Workplace

    Rather than trying to get more out of people, organizations are better served by investing more in them and meeting their multidimensional needs in order to fuel greater engagement and more sustainable high performance.  It’s not how much time we invest into our work that determines our productivity, but rather the value we produce during the hours we work.

    If we were to ask you right now how engaged you think your employees are, what would your answer be? We’ll give you a hint, the actual answer is far less. Unfortunately, most employers guess quite a bit higher.  According to Gallup, only 33 percentage of employees are engaged at a normal workplace. 

    Organizational engagement is the key to better employee retention, attracting top talent, and boosting productivity. So, what can you do?

    Learning Objectives:
    • How to best invest in our people and organization through the right resources at the right time.
    • Gain an understanding about how the generations play into your engagement strategy.
    • Better understand how you leverage your current solutions to attract and retain talent.
    • Identify how your work force has changed and what matters most to your talent.

    Replace Liability with Credibility

    Returning Favorite! Even if you win an employment-related lawsuit, you lose!  The cost and loss to your employer – not just in legal fees but in management time, employee morale and public relations – can be significant.  As a human resource professional, you are in a unique position to help your organization avoid these problems.

    Click here to REGISTER and learn more.

    This fast-paced, highly interactive program provides situation-specific advice for handling the significant HR challenges that you experience on the job. You'll learn:

    • How to educate and support your management team through effective and ethical employee relations practices that minimize employer and personal liability
    • Scripted responses to use in sensitive situations and to prevent past events from being used to support future legal claims
    • How to avoid senior managers saying to you, “You should have anticipated this” after an avoidable legal claim

    Litigation-free leadership is a by-product of positive employee relations.  In this two-day dynamic program specifically designed for human resource professionals, an extensive array of employee relations scenarios will be covered, including:

    Best practices for handling:
    • personality and attitude problems
    • corrective action and discharge
    • potential & actual sexual harassment
    • generalized disparaging comments
    • previously unaddressed misbehavior
    • serious on- & off-the-job misconduct

    And how to respond to:

    • concerns about job security
    • discriminatory comments
    • personal hygiene complaints
    • requests for job accommodations
    • threats of violence and bullying
    • disclosures of medical conditions

    You will walk away with increased confidence in handling sensitive employee relations situations that, while difficult and uncomfortable, must be addressed carefully to prevent employee morale and legal problems.

    “The Path Forward: Resignation to Retention” focuses on moving forward into our now-redefined workplace. The common denominator we, as a society, have faced over the past year is retention. What does this look like for the future of our companies? Our 2023 Austin SHRM Conference will focus on all aspects that cover workplace retention, diversity, and flexibility, where we strive to adapt and adjust.

    Join us on “The Path Forward” as we learn to progress into the future workspace.
