Productivity Summit in London
Did you know that more than a quarter of British employees describe themselves as "actively disengaged" at work? Employee engagement is the first barrier to workplace productivity. Helping that 25% of "actively disengaged" staff find a purpose has a direct impact on business productivity and bottom lines.
At least that’s where Unilever’s Chief Learning Officer Tim Munden is focussing his time. In his keynote address at The Productivity Summit, Tim will explain what Unilever is doing to help employees find their purpose, how to create a culture of curiosity and hunger to attract, retain and get the most out of talented people, and the measurable impact on the company’s outputs.
I’d love for you to join me at The Productivity Summit in London on 31st January 2019, to hear from Tim and others including Waitrose, Twitter and Team Sky about the methods they employ to improve staff engagement and meet with the solution providers with the tools to assist.
