Why is Action Planning So Difficult?

An agile approach to acting on employee feedback

MAY 15, 2019 - Chicago, IL

In Partnership with:


While most organizations today are leveraging employee engagement surveys, 80% of leaders don't believe their programs are driving meaningful change. This signals something is fundamentally wrong with how we have been approaching employee feedback. There is a great opportunity to shift away from the traditional focus on survey events and action plans, and instead, adopt a scalable and sustainable approach to using employee feedback to fuel change. 

In this seminar led by organizational development expert Mark Straetmans, Senior People Science Consultant at Glint, you will learn how to design a measurement strategy that empowers managers to not only listen to feedback, but do something with it. 

Following the seminar, join your peers for an interactive live panel discussion and Q&A led by employee engagement experts all passionate about improving engagement at their global organizations. You'll hear first-hand stories, best practices, and share with those who are interested in a new approach to taking action to improve employee engagement. 

During this interactive seminar and panel, you will:

  • Understand the importance of shifting the mindset around who owns employee engagement results and the simple signals you may be sending that confuse ownership and accountability 
  • Learn how you can help managers understand where to focus and outline a simple action-taking process aligned to company strategy (hint: it's not about a cumbersome action plan!)
  • Discover how your role as an HR professional transforms from administrative to strategic when managers are empowered
Check-in opens at 2:30pm.  Networking cocktail hour to follow panel.
