Business Sector Board Alliance (SBA2021) - NICC Business and Community Solutions (augusoft.net)

There’s a lot of buzz and conversation happening around the importance of employee engagement to a successful organization. Engagement is an overused, or at least misused, term. Engagement isn’t a process, but rather an end-state where your employees are “all in.”  Engaged employees work hard on today’s priorities, and when they believe what they do matters and know that you’re invested in them, they will stay with your business for the long term and help you solve the challenges of tomorrow. But getting to this state of engagement requires focusing on nurturing motivation.  A motivated workforce goes above and beyond to do what is in the best interest of the organization and, ultimately, the bottom line. In this class find out the steps to set clear expectations and goals and truly motivate your modern workforce.

NICC Virtual Class: Engaging, Motivating & Retaining Top Talent

Enter URL and insert class # 79633 to register
https://nicc.augusoft.net/index.cfm?method=ClassListing.ClassListingDisplay 

Unless organizations are willing to provide what their most talented employees need and expect in a work culture, the best and brightest will unashamedly seek opportunities elsewhere, leaving the company scrambling to replace them. How can we develop a more employee-centric culture in order to attract and retain today’s savvy, highly-educated employees?  We will have to let go of old ideas and attitudes that shaped traditional organizational structures, acknowledge what enthuses and motivates those key employees, and examine the impact our own leadership styles have on the career satisfaction and retention of our team members and attainment of our business goals. Aren’t they worth it?
