The Non-Obvious Solution to the Employee Engagement Equation

WNG Chairman's Forum

Please join the Washington Network Group (WNG) when we meet with Jamie Notter and Maddie Grant, co-authors of the recently published book, The Non-Obvious Guide to Employee Engagement. This session will be introduced by WNG Chairman Bill Stokes.

Wednesday, February 6, 2019
4:00 PM - 6:15 PM


Jamie Notter and Maddie Grant

We all want highly engaged employees, yet decades of employee engagement efforts have produced very few results. Why? Because we have been mistakenly focused on making employees happy and satisfied, rather than figuring out what’s getting in the way of them being successful. In this session, culture and engagement experts Jamie Notter and Maddie Grant will share key lessons from their third book, The Non-Obvious Guide to Employee Engagement, to help you find and fix the patterns inside your culture that are preventing engagement. They’ll give you a framework for drafting an engagement “playbook” that will improve both employee experience and organizational results.
