    Updating Work Cultures for Millennials
    The millennial workforce has the highest rate of unemployment and underemployment in the U.S. And of the millennials that are employed, only 29% are emotionally engaged at work and love their jobs. As the number of millennials recently surpassed any other generational group, companies needing talent are missing out on the largest available segment of the available workforce. To help address this gap, this session focuses on the unique work expectations and motivators to attract and engage millennials in your organization. (Presented by connexHR)

    Improving Supervisory Effectiveness
    In studies of employee engagement, supervisors are consistently identified as the top influencer of engagement. Yet, as the pace of business has quickened, supervisors have less and less time for the development needed to become effective motivators. Compounding this problem, many organizations have not updated their leadership L&D programs to adapt to the changing employee/employment relationship. In this session, we will define the key aspects of front-line leadership that need to be strengthened in order to deepen employee commitment, encourage discretionary effort, and increase overall engagement.

    Levers of Employee Engagement
    To increase engagement, organizations need to make changes to their work environment that builds both rational and emotional commitment. But how do we select what aspects of the employment experience to change? In this session, we'll outline a framework that organizes potential work culture changes into a series of “levers” in the following categories: Day-to-day Work, Team, Direct Manager, Organization. These levers were identified through a research-based approach by surveying employers across the U.S. and assessing the actual changes in engagement as organizations altered different aspects of their employment policies and work cultures. During the session, we’ll review the top levers and introduce an action plan framework that can be used to address these levers in your organization. (Presented by connexHR)
