Friday Footnote # 84
Each week we share loads of content amongst Team ION and with our network. Content that inspires us, which we find helpful, or just makes us smile. We thought we would start sharing these insights every Friday. Welcome to Friday Footnote.
Nurturing employee engagement
Our next ION Open Doors virtual learning event will take place on Thursday 3rd March and we will be joined by the newest member of the ION Swansea delivery team, Nathan Haymer, who will lead a session discussing 'Nurturing Employee Engagement'.
Employees don’t leave companies; they leave their Manager. Everyone knows that an engaged employee creates results and leaders are the key to driving employee motivation.
In this session we will discuss the true meaning of employee engagement and what you can do as a leader to improve this. We will look closely at employee motivation and talk about what drives them the most.
This thought provoking session has been designed to explore employee engagement, further your experience of motivation and enable you to tailor your methods to best support your business.
You can sign up to attend this free virtual (via Zoom) session on our events pages.
