Thu, 30 Mar 2017
Few things are worse than a disengaged workforce but some employee engagement initiatives can be counter-productive. At this event, Javier Bajer shows how values and mission statements are not enough to bring about behavioural change and motivate your employees to give their very best.

Beliefs are where the change happens and people do a better job when they believe in what they are doing, when they believe work matters.
