Going Beyond the Surface of Engagement: Exploring the Principles that Matter
Brad Shuck, Associate Professor of Human Resources and Organizational Development at the University of Louisville
Few ideas have generated more excitement with leaders than employee engagement. Everyone wants more of it, yet application, measurement, and practice—not to mention results—vary widely across the industry. What seems to be missing from the conversation is a fundamental understanding of the science behind the engagement phenomenon, as well as a deeper understanding around how the practice of engagement is deeply connected to outcomes that matter every day, including our personal and work lives. Using the latest decision-science, learn to focus on uncovering the psychology of employee engagement to build toward workplace conditions that promote happier, committed, and healthier employees at all levels. This evidence-based, yet informal and relaxed presentation is designed for leaders at all levels who hope to build a better place of work through sustainable, principle-based strategies – rather than prescribed, one-size fits all practices – that drive possibility and opportunity.
