• Total Reward to Improve Employee Engagement

    March 14 2012, 01:00 - 01:00
    Location: AmCham France- 77 rue de Miromesnil, 75008 Paris

    Recent research by The Conference Board has confirmed that there is a clear link between employee engagement and business performance. But worryingly there is evidence that globally employee engagement dropped significantly last year. So what developments are companies introducing to their compensation & benefits programs to improve this situation? Traditional, monetary rewards have been shown not to raise levels of employee engagement so how are HR executives and compensation & benefits professionals using reward to increase engagement and drive organizational performance? Some leading thinkers are looking at Total Reward as a way of helping, but many are not clear on what this means and how a total reward program can be developed and implemented. It will lead many companies to revisit their current reward arrangements and develop plans that reinforce and support employee engagement and the new business environment.

    This Executive Roundtable will discuss these areas with a leading expert and thinker, share the experiences and views of the attendees and help you go away with plans on the actions you need to undertake in your organization to develop programs to be successful in this challenging development.
