This presentation focuses on how to motivate your employees to take responsibility for their own engagement. The presentation begins by redefining employee engagement for the audience to ensure everyone is on the same page. Once a clear meaning of employee engagement is established, Sheridan covers the bottom line benefits of employee engagement and how it is essential for a company. Sheridan then gives participants a proven method for evaluating their own level of engagement. By being able to reflect on their own level of engagement, attendees can see how to strive to make their organization stronger. It also helps attendees see how to apply this method of evaluation to their own employees. Being able to evaluate the level of engagement at a company is essential for the company’s improvement. This leads into how to engage employees more fully, as Sheridan outlines the top drivers of employee engagement.
Throughout the presentation, Sheridan also touches on the importance of recognition and how it has a critical relationship with employee engagement. Sheridan closes his presentation by illustrating how to create an environment of shared ownership for engagement between a boss and employees. The concept of joint responsibility for engagement is not only innovative, but effective. It involves creating a strong relationship between a boss and employee, which Sheridan describes as "Managing Up". This keynote enables attendees to create a more engaged and productive workforce.
