Topic - Employee Engagement ? What is all the fuss!

The Business Network Educational seminar this month is all about Employee engagement.

The Phrase Employee Engagement is often banded around by directors and senior managers. They say that they are committed to improve their internal culture but often this is just lip service because it?s a trendy new concept. Employee Engagement is too often seen by commercially focused leaders to be the ?fluffy? end of strategic management and development and simply not for them but for HR.

These people are so wrong! Building real sustainable value in a business starts and ends with the people within it. Those business leaders who do not genuinely commit to engagement and trust strategies will ultimately underperform against their competitors as the dynamics of our workforce changes.

"The Business Network is one of the best networking organisations that I know and I have been a member of Manchester for five years. Helen Bennett is truly exceptional at what she does and in Tracy and Hayley she has chosen two people in her own mould to run The Chester Business Network. I am a founder member of The Chester Business Network and have recently re-signed for a second year because it?s dynamic, interesting and very productive. I can thoroughly recommend it as a source of new business opportunities, inspirational ideas ? and it?s good fun! "
