New conference drives home benefits of employee engagement
A new report on employee engagement will be showcased at the Spotlight on Employee Engagement Conference on 27 January 2009
Both the conference and the report are designed to help employers get to grips with the latest in employee engagement, and respond to the recent surge of interest in engagement sparked by a recognition that it links directly to enhanced business performance.
Mike Emmott, Employee Relations Adviser, CIPD, said: “More and more employers now see employee engagement as an essential tool to drive improved performance at both individual and organisational levels. Research suggests that there is significant room for improvement. The unfortunate fact is that most UK employees are not engaged and fewer still highly engaged and unless this issue is squarely addressed organisations will continue to under-perform.The focus now needs to be on how engagement levels can be improved and how the barriers to engagement identified in the report can be overcome.”
As well as findings from the above report, conference delegates will be addressed by David MacLeod, who is leading the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform’s current review of employee engagement. The conference will include case studies from KPMG, DWP, Visa Europe and Network Rail will be chaired by Tim Miller, Director, People, Property and Assurance, Standard Chartered Bank.
