April 21, 2009
The 21st Century is certain to be an era of accelerating speed and turbulent markets. In this context one thing is clear: sustainable competitive advantage will rely more than ever on a highly engaged workforce. Jack Welch put it this way: “There are only three measurements that tell you nearly everything you need to know about your organization’s overall performance: employee engagement, customer satisfaction, and cash flow.” In an economic recession, employee engagement stands out as the crucial factor that will either make or break organizations. The problem is that the traditional model of employer-centered engagement isn’t working. Global studies consistently show average engagement levels at 25 percent. Organizations with disengaged people will simply fall behind in their efforts to learn, adapt, and execute. They will be no match for the highly engaged enterprise. In this webcast, Dr. Timothy R. Clark and Dr. Conrad A. Gottfredson discuss a new model of employee-centered engagement and the six drivers of highly engaged employees. You will come away with practical and actionable information and tools that will help you elevate engagement levels in your organization.

But what if all managers had a clear line of sight and alignment to the same critical drivers of value creation for you organization, regardless of where they reside?”
Peter Mulford, Executive Vice President and head of the Strategic Alignment and Business Acumen Practice at BTS, will provide a simple framework and approach to developing a deeper understanding of the financial, strategic, and organizational decisions that impact company performance at the enterprise level, and how this understanding can be used to help your organization achieve superior performance.
