On October 15th we hosted our 2020 Client Connect Conference where we discussed the evolution and current thinking around employee engagement and its impact.

In partnership with the University of Louisville, HSD Metrics recently conducted a comprehensive study of how employee engagement is measured and reported.

In this keynote, experts Dan Cahill, Ph.D. (HSD Metrics) and Dr. Brad Shuck, Ph.D. (Professor at the Department of Educational Leadership, Evaluation and Organizational Development – University of Louisville) along with partners Karyn Troxell (Penske) and Polly Wright (Sheetz) share new ground-breaking data-driven insights on employee engagement that have not yet been explored, and how it applies to human resource teams.

This keynote presentation provides incredibly actionable ideas that will impact your workforce when implemented. Enjoy.
