CIPD Festival of Work

Day 1 - Internal Communication Stage 15:30 - 16:00

Think you’re reaching and engaging frontline workers? Think again.

Low engagement not only drains employee morale and productivity but also significantly affects retention – costing the global economy trillions.

Despite the high priority many businesses place on employee engagement, the majority of solutions fail to address the specific needs of frontline workers.

To get to the root of the problem, we spoke directly with frontline workers, gaining invaluable insights into their needs and perspectives.

Join HR technology expert Luke Boshoff, as he explores these raw frontline perspectives and shares actionable insights for you.

Day 2 - Main Stage - 11:00 - 11:30

Why low employee engagement is costing your business.

69% of employees will go the extra mile if they feel their work is appreciated. Think about that for a moment.

When employees are engaged, not only does morale improve, but companies see better retention, higher productivity, and even up to 21% higher profitability rates.

Despite this, leaders frequently fall into the same traps when trying to boost engagement, particularly with frontline workers.

In this session, HR technology expert Luke Talbot will discuss these mistakes and how you can avoid them to create an employee engagement strategy that gets results.
