In most large companies, the number of employees who are highly engaged in their work is less than 30%, and the number actively disengaged is greater than 20%. These figures are scandalous: engaged workers are the lifeblood of any creative or entrepreneurially-minded company, and most companies are simply failing to create the conditions that make people excited about coming to work.
In this Conference, experts from the worlds of academia and business practice will discuss the latest ideas about employee engagement, and some of the innovative approaches to generating engagement that they have tried. Questions to be addressed include:
Why does engagement matter?
What are the key drivers of engagement in the workplace?
What practical steps can you take to make your workforce more engaged?
The conference is being hosted by the Management Lab (MLab), a research centre at London Business School whose mission is to accelerate the evolution of management.
