In these times of economic uncertainty, many organisations are facing the realities of managing and leading their business through the toughest situation they have experienced. One of the most important assets any organisation needs to see it through is authentic leadership supported by an engaged workforce.
The business case for employee engagement is clear – leaders and managers who inspire and engage their employees are more likely to realise the full potential of their workforce, unlocking hidden talent and maximising business performance. Research shows that disengaged employees cost UK businesses alone, £40 billion per year. The costs of replacing key employees are also well documented.
Impact’s approach to Employee Engagement draws upon our 30 years of experience in leadership development and behavioural and organisational development.
We work in partnership with you to identify the key behavioural drivers of employee engagement in your organisation. Together we determine the effects of leadership behaviour within the context of employee engagement strategies and provide managers with practical people management tools to engage others and model the leadership required.
It is easy to forget the ‘people’ element in challenging times with sights often focused solely on hitting targets. Yet a sound employee engagement strategy allows an organisation to retain its top talent and reap the benefits of a loyal workforce committed to the future success of the business.
