Employee Engagement Trends for 2017..what's coming? What did we see and learn in 2016?

What's ahead for 2017?  Is your organisation ready?  

How can you capitalise on the business reality that winning in the marketplace begins by winning in the workplace?

2017 will likely be a transformational year in South Africa on many levels.  However, knowing what trends are coming allows HR and internal communication professionals to be better positioned to capitalize on the challenges, changes and choices facing South African industry.

Sweeping forces are reshaping the workplace, the workforce and work itself.  Despite South Africa's growing number of actively disengaged employees (49%), five major trends have the potential to transform the South African workplace, drive employee engagement and retention, improve leadership and redefine a consequential culture.

Issues to be discussed:

  • Move to turn HR from a cost centre to profit centre;
  • Navigating emerging employee demographic realities-Millennials;
  • Abandoning of traditional employee engagement measurement;
  • Rebooting leadership development; and
  • Rethinking the role of trust in building a culture in a distrusting employee society.
