An Engaging Place to Work

Target Group
This Seminar is by invitation only and is dedicated to corporate learning and corporate HR practitioners from companies, as well as Executive Development Centres.

Seminar description
The seminar will provide key outputs and lessons learned from the SIG members, including Allianz, Alstom, Baloise, Mazars, Merck/MSD, Pirelli, Raiffeisen Bank International, Repsol, SwissRe, UBS and Unicredit.

The state of engagement in companies worldwide is sobering. In their latest worldwide report, Gallup shocks us with an overall ratio of only 12% engaged employees. According to their findings, a further 64% of the global workforce is passively disengaged and, even more worryingly, 24% are out to actively hurt their employer. At the same time, companies with higher workforce engagement are more innovative and more productive. Companies in the top quartile of employee engagement have a 22% advantage in profitability to companies in the bottom quartile. And these findings seem conservative.

In the spring of 2014, the SIG members came together to explore what really drives engagement and what companies can do to become a workplace that lets employees thrive. The SIG gave particular focus to making engagement a business priority, improving engagement through smart process facilitation and to shaping key engagement drivers. We look forward to sharing our insights with you.
