Ask the Author: How To Build World-Class Employee Engagement

We all have a list of books that we want to read, but it can be hard to find the time to tick them off the list! That's why we've partnered with our portfolio company, Blinkist, to build a digital book club where an influential author provides a synopsis of the key insights from their book and then leads an informative group discussion. 

On November 29th, Debra Corey, Author of Amazon's #1 HR Best Selling book, Build It, will help us take a look at one of the most important yet overlooked secrets behind business success: employee engagement.

Drawing on a decade of research into 2,000 companies, Debra Corey will share the tactics of some of today’s highest performing companies to shed light on how they keep their workers engaged and productive. One common theme? They all tore up the HR rulebook, and this path-breaking book is designed to help you do just that.

What You Will Learn: 

  • How employee engagement helps companies perform.
  • The key factors that drive engagement, and how they work together.
  • What the world's most rebellious companies have done to break the rules of traditional HR and improve engagement.
  • How to implement The Engagement Bridge™ model to boost productivity, innovation and better decision making.
