Reengaging Your Workforce: Moving from Woe to Wow!

Please Login or Register for Free to view this video.


Engagement is what motivates people to not only feel dedicated to their job and their life, but also to feel rewarded by what they do and how they do it. It pushes people to look differently and go above and beyond, not because they have to, but because they want to. With the cost of lost productivity due to disengagement a staggering $500 Billion per year, no company can afford to ignore this issue. What if your managers are part of the 70% that self-identified as disengaged at work? How are they going to be able to lead and sustain a team of committed, satisfied and engaged employees? It’s time to turn our emphasis and energy into reengagement so that your workforce can move from woe to wow!
