Dallas ATD Lunch & Learn SIG
Hosted by Mary Anne (Wihbey) Davis
Rules of Engagement
Friday, April 10, 2015
Facilitator: Barb Ashbaugh
Employee satisfaction and employee engagement surveys are conducted in workplaces throughout the country. However, in companies throughout the country, the problems with disengagement don’t seem to get resolved and improvement is nominal. So, is the problem with the survey design? Or, do the problems lie with the survey roll-out, data collection or interpretation of the data? Does the company culture know how to channel higher levels of performance?
Join Barbara Ashbaugh, CPLP, and learn the rules of engagement. How do you get your return on investment from a survey? Gallup, a leading survey provider says, an engaged workforce renders the following ROI:
* 37% lower absenteeism
* 25% lower turnover (in high-turnover organizations)
* 65% lower turnover (in low-turnover organizations)
* 28% less shrinkage
* 48% fewer safety incidents
* 41% fewer patient safety incidents
* 41% fewer quality incidents (defects)
* 10% higher customer metrics
* 21% higher productivity
* 22% higher profitability
Come and gain a perspective by learning what is important to measure, and how to engage the workforce by bridging the relationship between a pleasurable workplace and a profit-making enterprise.

Why do you want to attend the January Lunch & Learn SIG meeting?
Because… You will learn principles that work from the best-selling book, Five Dysfunctions of a Team.
Because… A cohesive team will:
- · Make better, faster decisions as people are aligned and on-board
- · Leverage the skills, talents and opinions of all team members
- · Ensure conflict becomes productive and healthy versus draining and damaging
- · Focus on the results versus self-interest and politics
- · Create a competitive advantage and sets your organization apart
- · Eventually become “A Best Place to Work”
Join us for this interactive, engaging SIG where we will explore the behaviors that create a high performing team, give you practices to bring to your own organization and insight as to why this concept has been embraced and widely accepted around the world.
