Maximizing Your Human Capital: Get Your Employees Engaged

Presented by Melissa Ortiz

9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

All Leadership Development Conference Delegates Welcome

Engaged employees are 21 percent more productive, 48 percent safer and deliver 41 percent better quality. Leaders like you are responsible for creating a culture of engagement among your employees. What can you do on a daily, weekly and monthly basis to improve engagement in your organizations?

As leaders, you need to recruit and retain employees, engage your customers, produce high-quality products and deliver them on time. Learn how to do all that – and why it’s so important – at this Employee Engagement workshop that will add valuable skills to your leadership toolbox. 

In this workshop, you will:
  • Discover the science behind why employee engagement is the single most important metric in your organization 
  • Understand the impact of engagement and disengagement in the workplace, and on your individual team 
  • Acquire proven tools for engaging your employees – and gain practice with these tools
  • Learn to proactively manage your personal level of engagement 
  • Have a clear understanding of what employee engagement is, why it matters and how to create/sustain it

About Melissa Ortiz

Melissa Ortiz is CEO of Activate Human Capital Group. The past decade of Melissa’s career has focused on driving the softer financial indicators in business. Indicators like employee engagement, client engagement, internal customer engagement and strengths-based deployment of human capital. 

These metrics allow clients to quantify the level of psychological attachment that exists among their employees and clients – then proactively manage those metrics. These metrics matter because they are leading indicators; engagement is a forward-looking metric that predicts where we’re headed.
