Your not so Secret Weapon for Employee Engagement
Tuesday, May 10, 2016
7:30-9 a.m.
Savage and Associates Business Complex room 2160 

Research tells us that good management and strong employee-employee relations are vital to a company’s success, across all industries. Is it possible that you’re overlooking an obvious and easy way to boost employee engagement? At this mini-forum, a panel facilitated by Susan Ross Wells, Marketing Manager at Gilmore Jasion Mahler (GJM), will discuss: 

  • Ways to highlight and strengthen your brand through community involvement
  • How to increase the visibility of your company and employees
  • Tips to effectively and inexpensively highlight your employees and business

Positive employee relations leads to greater openness, trust and employees who take ownership in their work lives, which certainly impacts the bottom line. GJM has embraced this notion, and to it, attributes brand elevation, a more effective and diverse workforce, and better customer relations. And they’ve had a lot of fun along the way. Learn how you can do the same by attending this mini-forum.

This is a members-only event.
