     Workshop Overview:  This program offering is titled
    "Raising the Bar Now! An Everyday Approach to Elevating Engagement & Performance for HR Practitioners "


    Why focus on elevating employee engagement and improving performance as HR practitioners? Employees who are engaged in their work and committed to their organizations give organizations crucial competitive advantages—including higher productivity and lower employee turnover.


    • Increased communication
    • Focus on learning and development
    • Focus on performance

    You’ll come away from this session able to separate fact from hype regarding engagement. Additionally, you’ll be able to apply a toolkit of everyday HR practices that will help you to increase engagement and performance in your own organization right NOW.
