Show #229: The Importance of Employee Engagement in the Future of Work
Special Guest: Cat Barnard, Working the Future
Cat spent over 20 years in the technology staffing and recruitment field, prior to setting up Working the Future. Her experiences in recruitment gave her a detailed picture of why organisations sometimes fail to retain staff, and this inevitably and predominantly leads back to a failure to engage employees.
Working the Future specialises in helping business leaders adapt to increasingly disruptive and challenging commercial environments and focuses particular effort on helping leaders understand the importance of employee engagement in driving business success.
Join us as we talk about the importance of employee / worker engagement in the future of work. How important it is both for the individual to find meaning and purpose in their work (leading to heightened productivity), but also the importance of all workers understanding explicitly the values and vision of the business they work for so as to be able to help identify ways in which to improve commercial outcomes.
