    Engaging employees is a critical and paramount issue for those of us in public service. Engaged employees make a substantial difference in our organizations as they are twice as likely to remain in their jobs and 2.5 times more likely to recommend their workplace to others. Evidence clearly shows that organizations with engaged employees have higher rates of success in reaching their organizational goals. Additionally, disengaged employees can negatively impact others as well as potentially bring down a whole organization over time. This session will review a successful approach and plan for ensuring employee engagement. The session is specifically focused to address the different considerations between the public and the private sector.
