, CA (PressExposure) April 07, 2009 -- LSA Global, the premier one-stop global training and consulting firm that focuses on achieving measurable business results with a select group of clients, today announced the offering of a new program to help companies assess and improve employee engagement levels.
"Leading companies are definitely waking up to the fact that disengagement is severely hampering their ability to reach their targets,â states Russ Silva, Head of the Leadership Practice for LSA Global. âOur research-based Leading for Employee Engagement Program shows leaders how to create an environment in which employees are engaged in spite of the challenging times.â
Recent studies show that, across much of corporate America, 70% of the workforce is complacent or actively disengaged. This lack of engagement costs dearly. In fact, employee disengagement is responsible for the loss to US businesses of over $270 billion dollars a year. According to Silva, âCurrent employee engagement research points to the erosion of employee engagement as the single greatest business challenge that organizations face today. What organization can afford a loss in our current struggling economyâ¦especially when there are steps you can take to turn the situation around?â
Itâs easy to believe that your employees are engaged when they work long hours, you have low turnover, and the job market is in shambles. But Silva warns that you should not be deceived. âPeople often put in long hours begrudgingly and your top, but perhaps disengaged, performers are at risk of leaving because they are always in demand. You need your employees' full effort to reach your targets.â
âBased upon over 20 years of research and data gathered from over 20,000 managers and 60,000 employees across multiple industries, we have identified the core areas that drive successful employee engagement.â LSA Globalâs Leading for Employee Engagement Program is designed around those core areas. The program provides managers with proven tools and strategies to enable them to mobilize their employeesâ energy and commitment to be engaged and aligned with a companyâs business strategy, mission critical priorities, and improvement initiatives.
âThe two-day Leading for Employee Engagement workshop is specifically tailored to your organization and business strategy. During the interactive two days, intact work groups tackle real business challenges, and managers obtain a series of powerful engagement tools,â says Silva. The course has as its cornerstone the ACE? model: Accountability, Change-Readiness, Engaging Purpose.
