About the Event

According to the 2020 workplace theory, over 36% of the workforce will consist of people born after the baby boomer generation. This fact alone means that the workplace can change dramatically, facing the collision of generations, but at the same time will boast a more diverse workforce.

Unlike previous generations, millennials look further than job stability, competitive salaries and benefits to be committed and loyal to a company. They are driven by a sense of shared purpose, which means that they need to have a strong sense of their part in the ‘bigger picture’ to bring their best results to the workplace. And although until now businesses were mostly focused on satisfying key consumer needs, what becomes clear when examining the global workforce trends by 2020 is that employee experience is equally important for company success.

According to SHRM, experiential organizations (those that scored highest in culture, technology and physical workspace) outperformed their peers by 400% when it came to profits, saw 40% lower turnover, and had stock prices that outperformed the general market. Think about the key components of your employee experience and how you can improve them. How do you onboard your new employees? What does your employer brand feel like? How are you measuring the engagement of employees?

Employees use a variety of tools each day, producing data that can help organizations identify engagement issues and drive positive change. We live in the age of big data, and HR is the next industry poised to make the most of analytics. Specialized software, from pulse surveys to collaboration tools, captures data that can help teams make decisions to analyze employee engagement, predict future behavior, and inform solutions.

The cost of turnover can be staggering for many companies. Employee disengagement can be equally expensive. It is estimated that each disengaged employee costs their organization a whopping $2,246 in revenue per year. However, we can now anticipate engagement problems much better than before, saving organizations a great deal through retention.

Organizations and HR leaders have to prioritize employee experience and engagement as a business agenda and will increasingly need to focus on their culture, professional development opportunities, rewards and recognition, and team relationships to realize the value and benefits of increased performance brought about by an engaged workforce.

HRO Today’s 2020 Employee Engagement and Retention Summit will discuss how the best organizations to work for are planning on impacting employee engagement this year. Learn how to improve engagement and retention in your own company with practical advice from our faculty of leaders and engagement champions.
