This workshop takes place on 13th October between 2pm and 4.15pm.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, this session has had to be postponed.
The aim of this session is to provide participants with a range of tools and techniques to support individual motivation and engagement. Many organisations have reported that the Covid pandemic has impacted motivation and engagement and those that previously had few issues, are now finding that staff are less motivated than pre-pandemic times. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Reflect on some key theories of motivation and their application in the 21st century workplace
- Define what is meant by employee engagement
- Recognise factors that encourage employee engagement and identify reasons for disengagement
In today’s organisations, it is vital to ensure that all team members are effective and are performing as well as possible. At an intuitive level, we all know that we perform best when we are motivated and engaged at work. We also know that “happy staff = happy customers”. By focusing attention on motivation and employee engagement, it is possible to become sought after by both clients and employees which will support the organisation to thrive and achieve its goals.
- Tools and techniques arising from theories of motivation
- Definitions of employee engagement
