webinar description

Findings from a recent Gallup study entitled “State of the American Workplace” report that 70% of U.S. workers don’t like their job. If that is even a remotely accurate figure, then there are tens of millions of Americans that are completely disconnected and disengaged from their employers. This means less productivity, less collaboration, less innovation and a lot more turnover - - and that’s just for starters! In this webinar, Mark Preston will dive into proven best practices for effectively increasing your workforce engagement, which ultimately improves your team’s overall success & bottom line.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Learn how to engage your team, get heightened performance, and have a happier workforce

  • Learn proven practices for improving your operations, your bottom line, and your team's satisfaction
