Episode 5 –  Employee Engagement: How Leaders Can Foster Engagement to Create Powerhouse Employees

ED Talks Logo - Economic DevelopmentIn this episode, we welcome internationally recognized employee engagement thought leader, Dr. Brad Shuck.

Dr. Mandolen Mull and Dr. Brad Shuck cover the fascinating and much-discussed topic of employee engagement. A company that has a high level of employee engagement is a healthier and more successful organization. Leaders need a strategy to ensure employees are engaged in an organization and a good culture fit. Leaders that can generate engagement find that employees are more involved, willing to take risks that benefit the organization, and are healthier overall.

Consider this: 85% of employees globally are either not engaged or actively disengaged and companies that have a high rate of employee engagement are 21% more profitable.

Can your company give up 21% of its profits?
