Successful employee engagement: getting beyond the rhetoric

My old friends at CIPR Inside have organised a great forthcoming event which will shine the spotlight firmly on practical employee engagement. Taking place in central London on the morning of Thursday 15 April, it will feature speakers from M&S, O2, HSBC and Babcock Marine.  Hosted by committee member Sean Trainor, a man with a real passion for employee engagement, it promises to be great value at a whisker over £45 and £65 for CIPR members and non-members respectively.  The morning will use case studies from the above organisations to explore the four engagement drivers or enablers identified in the recent Government-sponsored ‘Engaging for Success’ report produced by David McLeod and colleagues.  These are leadership, engaging managers, employee voice and integrity. Its aim will be to move beyond the theory and show how real organisations are making engagement happen now. A useful accompaniment to the McLeod report itself, it looks like a very useful and timely event and I, for one, will be there. Follow this link to find out more and book your place.  See you there!
