The latest Employee Engagement issues, trends and best-practice strategies to engage your changing workforce

Auckland | 5 - 6 December 2016 

Employee engagement is one of the most crucial elements in a workplace and has become a high priority for organisations aiming to drive higher performance. Research has proven that employees with high levels of engagement feel valued in their workplace, and are in turn more productive and motivated to go the extra mile in their work. Conversely, employee disengagement is likely to give rise to a higher rate of absenteeism and turnover frequencies– costing businesses billions of dollars annually. 
With organisations everywhere striving to cope with changing workforce demographics and heightened employee expectations, HR teams must start re-evaluating how they engage and retain their employees. 
Featuring insightful case studies and interactive panel discussions from New Zealand’s leading companies, Employee Engagement Summit New Zealand is a must-attend two-day forum which will equip you with best practices for designing and implementing staff engagement strategies to boost employee performance and productivity.
