1:40 PM How to Build Your Culture Champion Program and Improve Your Employee Engagement

Creating an engaged workforce is critical to business success. Engaged employees positively impact retention, productivity, customer evaluations, profitability, and many other business results. While leading organizations are aware of the problem and are actively seeking solutions, many are not seeing a good return on their engagement investments. The main problem - they don't understand what their employees need. Learn how building a "Culture Champion Program" can help them to identify the "social" leaders within the company and work with them as representatives to improve the culture and employee satisfaction.

·  How to create and support a culture champion program within your organization
·  How it's easier than you think to stop hearing "thanks for the random cake..." and instead build local and global initiatives that actually resonate with your organization's microcultures  
·  Build community and connection, improve engagement, and spark inclusion and innovation by empowering your employees to lead the way in their own growth and development
