Topic: "Engaging Your Workforce Through Communication"

Great leaders do not just manage employees; they make sure employees are motivated, engaged and inspired when coming to work. Overlooking basic communication about change in the workplace can result in disengagement, loss of valuable employees, increased anxiety and poor decision making.

This session will address the following:

  1. Creating the moment of change for your employees
  2. Understanding of how communicating employee benefit information has changed
  3. Technology solutions that drive efficient communication
  4. Delivering communication that reinforces the value of your strategy

Engaging your employees with real communication to understand the strategy behind workplace changes, will cultivate success for you, your employees, and your organization.
