The North West Employee Engagement Group Launch Event


Wednesday 14th May at acdc Lighting, Wordsworth House

Employee Engagement is no longer just a buzzword amongst HR professionals. In 2011, the Prime Minister helped launch the Engage for Success initiative stating that engaging workforces was integral to delivering sustainable growth and increasing people’s wellbeing.

This is why we are launching this exciting new forum enabling fellow HR leaders within the North West area to meet one another, share best practice and learn more about how better staff engagement can lead to increases in retention and productivity.

Because HR is constantly evolving, we believe it is vital for people to come together and find out more about the various challenges organisations face when setting out an engagement strategy.

For the first event, Scancapture MD and Engage for Success guru, Steve Smith will be discussing why there is a need for employee engagement and exploring how exemplary organisations such as The John Lewis Partnership has created a hugely productive workforce that feel valued and integral to the organisation’s success.

We will also be hearing from HR & People Development Manager Karen Twist, who will share her own experiences of developing an engagement strategy for acdc Lighting. Karen will speak about challenges and rewards borne out of Employee Engagement and will also provide some invaluable advice on where to go to set the wheels in motion.

Whether you are a seasoned employee engagement expert, want to know more about best practice or simply wish to widen your HR network we would be delighted to welcome you to what we hope is the first of many dynamic and worthwhile events.

This event is free to attend and Free Parking is available. Refreshments will be provided
