KEYNOTE: Excellence in Employee Engagement: Maximizing the Moments that Matter

How do we best support employees in this rapidly changing world? Research shows us that the acquisition, retention, and engagement of employees revolves around their experience. But how do we define that experience? What are the building blocks or units of measurement? What are the key moments that determine whether an employee stays or leaves?

In this year's keynote, Jeremy Goebel and Zac Ryland from TiER1 Performance, synthesize what researchers know about the actions we can take, the systems/processes we should build, and the expectations we should have of each other along the journey. You'll leave with insights, actionable next steps, and (hopefully) a bunch of laughs - all while thinking strategically about how we are called to help individuals thrive as talent and learning leaders in the post-pandemic age.
