In this session, you'll learn a roadmap for getting lean and lots of great insights and tactics for creating meaningfulness in the work lives of your employees. As business executives, we recognize the importance of the "work experience" in the value proposition that guides employees' choices about whether they will stay or leave. People today want to do "meaningful work." But exactly what makes work meaningful? And how can you make work meaningful for your employees? As the author of a book called Lean & Meaningful: A New Culture for Corporate America, our speaker will share with us how to shift our corporate culture to what she calls "lean and meaningful."
Why Should You Attend: It's a matter of corporate survival! Companies will maintain an ongoing drive to re-engineer their employee populations for optimum profitability; thus they will continue to lay off workers. With the recovery of the economy, employee turnover is mounting. On top of that, you have increasing competition for top talent. Without competent employees, you cannot serve your customers. Without customers....you will not survive these challenging times. So what are organizations to do?
