Virtual Employee Engagement Masterclass

It’s no secret that employee engagement is one of HR’s most persistent challenges. Our Virtual Employee Engagement Masterclass will help you find the tools you need to drive engagement and boost productivity and retention. With snappy expert presentations and intimate break-out rooms, this Masterclass is the perfect forum to connect with senior HR people and discover real strategies and solutions.


Topics include the power of recognition, the importance of fun in engagement, getting to know your employees, and the value in conducting surveys properly. 


We'll close with an unmissable keynote presentation from Christina Houlgrave, Group Inclusion, Diversity & Engagement Manager at Skanska.

How it Works

Our ethos is simple. We want you to be an active participant. That’s why we’ve developed a format designed to optimise interaction and engagement.


We start our Virtual Employee Engagament Masterclass with a short series of virtual roundtable rotations. Each of these features a 10 minute presentation from one of our expert speakers, followed by 15 minutes of peer-to-peer conversations. When the time’s up, a new team of experts will join the room for a fresh round of presentations and roundtable discussions.


These intimate break-out rooms are the perfect forum for you to ask questions and find solutions to your employee engagement challenges.


And if you already know what you’d like to discuss, just let us know. Our registration form gives you the chance to suggest core topics and help us shape the agenda. Click the button to register now.
