HR Information Sessions – For All Seasons

Session 2 – Employee Engagement; Who needs employees anyway?

You do.

Results of a recent study indicate that only 13% of people are motivated to come to work, yet a motivated workforce equates to 28% higher profitability and 50 times more client retention. If you want your business to succeed, you need employees who are engaged, satisfied and willing to go the extra mile.

So you’re thinking employee engagement is just another HR phrase or the latest buzz words? There are many definitions floating around in the HR world, but in its simplest form, highly engaged employees act like partners or owners in the business. They are more than satisfied employees just doing their job. Substantial benefits can be gained by having a highly engaged workforce.

Join us for an informative, free presentation on how you can not only improve your staff engagement levels, but effectively mute the voices of the disengaged.

Time: 3.30pm – 5.30pm

Venue: Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service Base, Bavin Road, Broadmeadow

RSVP: By Wednesday, 20th November, to or 1300 40 60 05
