Since CRF last examined the question of employee engagement in 2010, new challenges have emerged to test relationships within organisations, and nagging questions remain about whether investments in engagement are worthwhile.

Surveys continue to indicate low levels of engagement and trust in organisations and their leaders.
Results of investments made in employee engagement initiatives are mixed.
Some academics express concern that the concept of engagement is imprecise, that measurement is compromised, and that claims about improved performance cannot be substantiated.

At this event you will have the opportunity to discuss:

• the effectiveness of your organisation’s investments in engagement
• whether you are measuring what matters
• whether you are getting the best out of your human capital
• what further work may be required.

With expert input from the perspectives of HR, academics and research findings, this will be a highly interactive event, exploring:

• how to tackle challenges and dilemmas
• what can and can’t be improved
• how to achieve more precision and focus in addressing engagement
• how efforts to improve engagement will need to adapt to the future.
