In a world where competitiveness is multiplying, the human factor is now the main differentiating factor. The performance of employees cannot be separated from the company’s.
Otherwise, different factors could turn employees into sources of loss if they are not as involved and especially engaged in their work.
According to the Steel Case and Ipsos study on employee engagement:
“Of the 17 countries studied and the 12,480 participants, 1/3 of the employees are disengaged.”
Germany, UK, the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium and France scored below the world average in terms of the rate of employees being engaged and satisfied with their working environment. Employee disengagement is not limited to a particular industry but affects all businesses. Some companies place more emphasis on employee engagement because they successfully established the link between commitment and performance. This is why they have put in place mechanisms to measure the degree of commitment of employees and try to establish programs enabling the optimization of well-being at work, through various actions targeting motivation, the quality of the working environment, managerial leadership and others, in order to build a culture of sustainable engagement.
There are no sectors that are eradicated or less affected by this scourge. As long as companies work in an environment that is changing constantly, there will always be sources and factors optimizing disengagement. As a result, it will always be necessary to increase the level of vigilance in order to limit the risks of disengagement.
Companies are interested in knowing more about:
- How to improve the employer branding and communicate about the company’s values to the employees
- How can we put the company’s culture at the service of employee engagement?
- The role of leadership in managing employee engagement
- How to create a sense of belonging among the employees?
- How to use predictive analytics to improve employee engagement?
- How to maintain employee engagement after a M&A or a strategic transformation?
Consequently, executives involved in HR, Talent Management, Engagement and Retention, Internal Communication and so on should definitely not miss out on this opportunity to attend the marcus evans‘ Employee Engagement conference taking place on the 27th-29th of September in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
