Have you ever said the words ‘My door is always open?’
It’s a common refrain from management, uttered with a genuine belief that being accessible is an important trait when dealing with people. And it is. But, in today’s age of remote working, flexible hours, zero hours contracts and reduced management, your open door is no longer enough.
There may not even be a door to open.
Today’s workforce needs to know that their needs are being considered. As an employer, you need to have your finger on the pulse of how your team feels, what is working and what their concerns may be.
How do you begin to learn what’s happening in your workforce and what strategies should you deploy to keep your business engaged with your team?
If you’re thinking about how 21st century work structures can positively impact on modern business, then our event as part of Leicester Business Festival is for you.
Taking place at the exquisite Queen Victoria Arts Club in Leicester city centre on the second day of the festival, Tuesday 29th October 2019, three leading experts in employee engagement will help you engage with every colleague in a way that works for both the business and them.
Kirsty Turner, Head of HR at UK retailer Iceland will offer a case study on how Iceland uses employee engagement at what has been voted one of the best companies to work for in the UK.
Cheryl Willey, HR Consultant at Peak HR will give impartial advice to the audience on the benefits of employee engagement strategies.
We Love Surveys very own Helen Dargie will talk about how technology can assist HR leaders in taking the pulse of the team on a regular basis, how it sends engagement soaring and how data can be used to form strategies for the business as a whole.
This event is suitable for businesses of all sizes looking to improve the way they engage their employees to increase productivity and wellbeing.
