January 23 (9 - 10a) / Reenergize Your Best Employees Before They Leave You (American Management Association)
Some organizations have been taken over by a culture of negativity, and in others employees are feeling the years of recession and becoming less motivated and engaged in their work. When the recession initially hit a few years ago, there was an outburst of energy with high-potential employees. Not only were organizations trying to keep things going with reduced staff, those passionate about their work and their organizations were trying to keep the vision and in some cases the organization itself, alive. But the recession lasted longer than expected, and many of these workers feel tired, disheartened, and tempted to new positions elsewhere as the economy improves. Attend this webcast and discover tips and tactics for reengaging your employees using time-tested tools and techniques from the best of AMA.
