Employee Engagement and Leading People Effectively: Insights from the Field

SUNDAY, APRIL 9, 3:00-4:30PM
TRACK: SHELTERING FOR CHANGE

SPEAKER: Dr. Steven G. Rogelberg, University of North Carolina at Charlotte

This interactive session will share learnings from the largest collection of shelter employee data ever collected, from 100 shelters and more than 2000 employees. After exploring common shelter strengths and problem areas in an evidence-based manner, we will move to a discussion of solutions and best practices for addressing key challenges typically raised by employees, such as communication and cross-departmental teamwork. Attendees will also be introduced to a new free tool, the People Practices Self-Check.

Three Key Learnings:
1. Gain evidence-based insight into the vexing talent-related challenges shelters are facing from the perspective of the employee
2. Examine and explore practices to promote employee engagement
3. Benchmark with peers at the session to identify compelling solutions
