This event is co-hosted with the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) Kansas City Chapter.
With all the disruption in today's workforce, the most successful companies know that the secret to unlocking world-class performance lies in maximizing the potential of every single team member.
Engaged employees are those who work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company. They drive innovation and move the organization forward.
Gallup delivers analytics and advice to help leaders and organizations solve their most pressing problems. Combining more than 80 years of experience with its global reach, Gallup knows more about the attitudes and behaviors of employees, customers, students and citizens than any other organization in the world. Join your colleagues for this unique opportunity to learn from Gallup’s Chairman and CEO, Jim Clifton.
Attendees will gain insight on:
1) Why Gallup believes that great managers are the No. 1 employee benefit your organization can offer.
2) How to bring out the best in your employees and organization.
3) How to keep up with disruptive workplace trends to facilitate growth and positively impact the bottom line.
