Presenter: Jason Cochran
Location: Small Ballroom
In this session, we’ll address the problems created by the employee engagement model for people strategy and, thus, why engagement levels haven’t moved in 30+ years of research and implementation.
We’ll then explore an alternative framework (4 Principles of Connection) that examines people strategy through the lenses of employee experience and human-centered design thinking to infuse purpose that leads to personal fulfillment and organizational mission.
Participants will be given a simple, clear framework (4 Principles of Connection) for creating the moments that matter in the employee lifecycle along with specific tips and examples of employee experiences within each of the principles of connection.
