Workshop: What It Means to Work Here
A highly engaged workforce has never been more important. Tammy’s unique, ground-breaking work on employee engagement provides a powerful perspective: companies with extraordinary employee-employer relationships understand what it means to work in their organizations and excel at embedding that meaning in the day-to-day employee experience. Engaging employees is not about copying another corporation’s best practices. It’s about digging deep to identify what’s uniquely important to your organization and translating that into tangible elements of every employee’s day-to-day reality.
As Tammy’s research shows, individuals find meaning in different aspects of work; work plays different roles in our lives. Understand the six psycho-demographic segments that describe our relationship to work and the elements of the employee experience that are most appealing to each segment.
This workshop is appropriate for everyone who wants to learn more about engagement. Because the work sessions are designed as breakouts, the total group can be as large as the room space accommodates. Each breakout group should ideally include no more than 6 participants.
Highly interactive delivery format with an extended breakout session, providing pragmatic take-aways.
The total time parameter is 3.5 hours, not including breaks.
