Engagement is NOT Enough!

by Jim Richardson on October 16, 2012

Going Beyond Engagement to Create Passionate Employees

Friday – October 26, 2012 8:00 – 10:00 AM

Focusing on retention of both customers and employees is becoming even more critical as we move into the fourth quarter of 2012. Numerous employee surveys predict that up to 50 percent of employees will be looking for new jobs in the next 6 months. When employees are not committed to the company they work for, their attitude also affects customer relationships.

Business studies continue to reinforce that strong TRUST relationships between the company, its leaders, and its employees are the key to retaining both employees and customers. Sponsored by Carole Gill and Jim Richardson, and featuring special guest and co-presenter Mr. Keith Ayers, founder of the Integro Leadership Institute, author of Engagement is Not Enough and one of the world’s most respected experts on the topics of employee engagement, leadership development and workplace trust.

Keith will share his organization’s most current research on Bridging the Employee Passion Deficit, building a compelling case for leaders to stop focusing on engagement, and set their sights on igniting the fire of passion within their employees.

Registration Fee is $25.00 per person and includes continental breakfast. Participants will receive a copy of Keith’s latest 23-page research report: Bridging The Employee Passion Deficit: Why people are passionate about their work but not their employer—and what you can do about it.
