Certificate In Employee Engagement

Overview:

Introduction:

The course is highly participative with a number of case studies, exercises, and discussion groups. Tom is keen for you to bring with you issues and challenges from your own organization so that he can give you relevant guidance and support. As companies strive to compete in an increasingly competitive marketplace, you need to think about your employees and whether they are highly engaged to help your business grow. Recent research from Aon Group has shown that 61% of employees globally are engaged, meaning 39% are not; so how is this creating a drag on business performance? Employee Engagement is generally seen as a state of being, that brings together concepts of work effort, motivation, organizational commitment, and job satisfaction. In simple terms, it is about employees ‘going the extra mile’, and feeling valued with passion for work.

In the Middle East the main focus, over the past few decades, is in the use of reward to motivate and ultimately ‘engage’ employees. While reward can play a role there are a number of other actions that will help employees to be happier, healthier, and more fulfilled at work, and as a consequence, they will deliver improved business performance. Research has repeatedly demonstrated that positive work relationships are linked to profit, revenue growth, customer satisfaction, etc. In addition, engaged employees will be stronger advocates of their organizations and help protect the employer from the reputational risks associated with poor service levels or product quality.

Conversely, having a disengaged workforce brings huge risks, as well as productivity losses. Organizations may lose their best people, threaten effective collaboration, innovation, and human capital management, as employees will not be inclined to use their tacit knowledge and skills for the good of the organization.

This course will provide knowledge, guidelines, templates, and case studies to help you develop an engaged workforce and contribute to improved business performance.
