Evolution of Employee Voice: How Active Listening Will Positively Impact Employee Engagement

Posted By Editor, Laurie, Thursday, March 1, 2018
Updated: Thursday, March 1, 2018

Contributed by Rob Catalano, Co Founder, WorkTango and HR West 2018 Speaker

In 2015, a Gallup poll revealed that 50.8% of US employees were “not engaged,” while 17.2% were “actively disengaged.” This is a scary thought for the future of our companies.

Today we’re going to talk about the evolution of employee voice in helping support our ever changing needs to listen to and understand our employees to better engage them.

WHY IS EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT IMPORTANT?

Is It Enough that Your Company Has an Open-Door Policy?

Posted By Editor, Laurie, Tuesday, February 27, 2018
