Leveraging the Power of Employee Engagement in Government

Leveraging the Power of Employee Engagement in Government

 Sunday, September 18, 8:30AM - 4:30PM

Attend this one day workshop, which will prepare participants for developing and improving upon employee engagement strategies, with a focus on engagement in the unique environment of government. Research tells us that organizations with highly-engaged employees outperform those with low employee engagement, including in government. Despite the link to organizational performance, a 2012 employee engagement survey conducted by IPMA-HR, ADP and Governing, found that only 30 percent of organizations conduct employee engagement surveys.
