Beyond Ping Pong & Pilates: What Employees REALLY Want from Work

What does it take to be recognized as a best place to work and to create a thriving culture that recruits, engages and retains talent? In top workplaces and at employers of choice, employees feel valued, inspired, and connected to their work and coworkers. For employers, engaged, thriving employees means a competitive business advantage, including improved employee engagement, increased creativity and innovation, improved leadership effectiveness, and stronger, more cohesive teams. All these factors improve an organization’s bottom line and their ability to recruit and retain talent. In this session, you’ll learn what it takes to build a thriving culture from the inside out and how to position yourself as a more strategic HR leader.

Learning Objectives

In this session, attendees will:

  1. Discover five key strategies to engaging and retaining employees based on data collected from over a half-million employees
  2. Distinguish between perceptions of what makes a healthy workplace culture and what the evidence says about what employees want
  3. Identify the three things employees want most from work
  4. Learn innovative, practical and actionable strategies for fostering connection and engagement at your workplace, so you can become an employer of choice

This event has been submitted for SHRM/HRCI credits.
