Human Capital Institute

Unique Event to Explore the Most Effective Ways to Increase Employee Engagement and Retention

NEW YORK (April 28, 2015) – The Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global association for strategic talent management, today announced details of its 2015 Employee Engagement Conference. The event, which will take place at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco from Monday, July 27 through Wednesday, July 29, 2015, will highlight the tools and techniques to enhance employee engagement and create a culture of accountability, growth and connection.

Improving employee engagement is one of the most pressing initiatives for companies today. But to achieve real employee engagement, HR must develop, equip and empower managers with the right tools to translate the corporate vision into day-to-day business practices. With the right strategy in place, individuals will understand the value of their roles in achieving organizational goals, leading to a more engaged, satisfied and productive workforce. However, to get to that state, organizations must overcome challenges, such as a lack of consistent buy-in from leadership or limited funding, to truly transform how they engage their employees.

HCI’s 2015 Employee Engagement Conference is designed to present attendees with the best practices for creating an effective engagement strategy from many of the most preeminent thought leaders on employee engagement today. The conference will share insight on how to train and coach managers to drive engagement on a daily basis as well as proven strategies for communicating organizational goals that connect with employees and creating trust and transparency as part of the company culture.

Through a robust agenda of workshops, keynote sessions and networking events, attendees will learn crucial insight they can take back to their organizations to implement immediate improvement. Among the highlights include sessions led by Scott Welch, global corporate relations manager for Columbia Sportswear Company; Jen Freitas, director, People Learning and Engagement for Clif Bar & Company; and the training and development experts from The Second City.

“The ability to keep employees engaged and working toward organizational goals is one of the most important, yet challenging, aspects for many companies,” said Carl Rhodes, HCI’s chief executive officer. “Without a clearly defined engagement strategy, companies will struggle to create a culture of accountability, ensure organizational alignment to key objectives and retain their best talent. The goal of our 2015 Employee Engagement Conference is to help more companies understand not just the value of improving engagement, but also the real business impact of having a motivated and engaged workforce.”
