Why Your Employees Are Just Not That Into You... And What to Do About It

Workshop 4 | Thursday, May 11 | 10:15 - 11:45

Despite over $1 Billion spent annually in the US alone on improving employee engagement, scores have remained essentially unchanged since Gallup burst on the scene with their research over 15 years ago. Managers complain about employees being more into “what can you do for me?” than in “how can I contribute?” In this workshop, David Lee, Founder of HumanNature@Work, explores what employers and managers unwittingly do to make employees “just not that into” their employer, and what can be done to remedy these mistakes. We will identify whether the organization is engaging in practices that prevent engagement-boosting efforts from yielding results. We will discuss what great employers and great managers do to inspire a passionate commitment to excellence and foster employees’ desire to make the biggest contribution possible. And, we will focus much of our attention on the often unnoticed “moments of truth” that if treated carelessly, can damage engagement, but if handled well, can instead boost engagement.
