Employee Engagement & Development Conference


Published on

Employee Engagement is a new business science that is rapidly becoming critical knowledge for leaders across the enterprise. Today, organizations are in a highly competitive global, board band business world. Therefore, they can no longer afford slow, incremental improvement. Organizations must value past their competitors with new ideas, innovative new products, and the agility to enter and markets on a dime.

Many organisations are facing the realities of managing and leading their business through the
toughest situation they have ever experienced. The current crisis has clearly shown that responsible business practice is critical to an organisation’s sustainability. One of the most important assets any organisation needs to see it through is good leadership supported by an engaged workforce.

The business case for employee engagement is clear, whether in challenging times or not – leaders and managers who inspire and engage their employees are more likely to realise the full potential of their workforce, unlocking hidden talent and maximising business performance.

Many market leaders are moving away from the industrial-era HR model that manages people as one more ‘resource’ in the supply chain. In fact, the traditional administrative HR activities to support this model are already being commoditized, outsourced, and off-shored, along with other command and control management practices.

By attending the Employee Engagement & Development Conference, HR professionals from across the Asia Pacific will discover the inside secrets of today's best performing and most highly valued human resources professionals. This conference will give you the opportunity to explore with us the key behavioural drivers of employee engagement, the role of the leader, organisational culture, as well as the barriers to employee engagement and how to overcome them. We will look at how to develop effective engagement strategies that will help you to create and sustain a highly engaged workforce within your organisation. You'll learn how to maximize HR's strategic value within an
organization, transforming it from an administrative function to a dynamic, bottom-line-enhancing business asset. The highly topical issues that will be discussed coupled with the appropriately senior speakers ensure that delegates will gain the practical edge and nurture the connections to get ahead.

This conference will provide HR professionals a unique opportunity to get an understanding on the most current pressing HR issues.
