The Training Foundation is hosting a workshop for senior executives on 12th January at its Coventry headquarters which will focus on clarifying the current confusion surrounding employee engagement.

The event will be chaired by HRreview blogger Nick Mitchell, author of the Rules of Engagement. The keynote speaker will be David Macleod, author of the Macleod Report to Government.

David will be outlining the next phase of the Government’s engagement strategy in which he is integrally involved.

According to the May 2010 CBI survey and its subsequent report to Government, employee engagement is now the biggest threat to the economic recovery. For many private sector employers, the situation is being adversely impacted by commercial decisions they are finding it necessary to make.

Across the public sector, the recently announced cuts are creating a mood of general anxiety about job security. Against this background, maintaining morale and engagement will be a major challenge for HR professionals in 2011.

The seminar will consider:

The findings of the 2009 Macleod Report to UK Government on Employee Engagement
The latest research into the six universal drivers that influence employee engagement
three Rules of Engagement that are the keys to a highly engaged workforce
The CHOICE engagement model and how it can be applied for performance improvement
