Mastering the Employee Experience: Included and Engaged


Creating an inclusive and engaging workplace is challenging, especially in our world today. Whether our workplaces are in-person, hybrid or remote, every workplace wants to create a successful and productive culture, but we don't always know how. In this 60 minute presentation, Roman 3 will address the importance of employee engagement and inclusion, as well as the common mistakes we make when trying to create both. We will describe what can happen when we stop addressing them as separately and start thinking of them as two sides of the same coin. We will leave you with clear and tangible examples of what success needs to look like in order to create a workplace that makes everyone feel respected, trusted, encouraged, and inspired. We will also look to engage as much input and questions from participants and use as many real-life examples as possible to ensure that all information is practical and meaningful to everyone in attendance.
