How to understand and engage employees, from a psychological point of view
This is a joint event, run by the Bristol Media People Forum and Engage for Success.
Increasing numbers of businesses now view employee engagement as an important source of competitive advantage, in the quest for improved levels of business productivity.
Sometimes, such businesses limit their efforts to superficial solutions – a ping pong table for the office space perhaps?
Alternatively, they may take a more mechanistic approach – our employees would be more engaged, if only they would follow the process!
Our view is that to engage employees (who are also known as human beings, with hopes, fears, values and personality attributes) you need first to really understand them.
