Forward-thinking HR professionals and leaders understand the importance of employee engagement. Engaged employees:
• Are 87% less likely to leave their organisation
• Take on average 3.5% fewer sick days each year
• Generate 43% more revenue

• Discuss common challenges when improving employee engagement
• Share the latest industry trends
• Build relationships with industry professionals
• The future of employee engagement – smith+henderson
• Attracting the next generation of talent – Reed.co.uk
• The secret to creating a highly engaged workforce – Engage & Grow
