Employee engagement is, and has been for sometime, one of the hottest topics of the moment. Most people in the HR function have it on their to-do list ….and if they do not, they will have it there soon.

The employee-employer relationship is changing and employers understand more and more the power of having highly engaged employees – they have high ownership of the company goals; they are happy in their work and will stay; they are motivated and perform well.

Over the last 24 months we have also seen the impact of the Global Financial Crisis on every business – this has lead to job losses, smaller bonuses (if any), salary freezes and a general feeling of uncertainty in the workforce.

So how do you build engagement in these challenging times?

Or better yet, can you really engaged your employees while implementing organizational changes?

The answer is: "YES, YOU CAN!" and to learn how to do this, JOIN US in this event as our guest speaker, Mr. Andrew Manterfield, former HR Director for Diageo in Australia and Asia including Japan, shares his actual experience and insights on how the world’s number one adult drinks company delivered 2 pieces of organizational change in 18 months, in their Australian business whilst increasing employee engagement almost 3 fold, halving turnover and was ranked 4th Best Place to Work in Australia in 2009 and 2nd in 2010 by The Great Place to Work Organisation.
