The Power of Recognition

Despite there being much research and best practice workshops about Employee Engagement the reality still sucks.

Nowadays, no one argues with the tangible benefits but why do so many well intentioned organisations fall so far short.

At a time of increasing uncertainty in so many industries and sectors, a strong and authentic approach to Engagement can make a telling difference to both the morale and motivation of your people.

Why wouldn’t any organisation want to have better engaged employees?

We will have a panel of unique engagement experts to help us crack this huge opportunity.


Date: Thursday 20 September 2018

Time: 6pm – 9pm

Venue: A Studio Setting in London (successful applicants will be advised of exact location address)
