Turning the Page: Reengage People and Revitalize Your Culture

Nov 11, 2021

Sponsored by DEKRA


Sponsored by DEKRA. Disruption, change and stress have marked our work and personal lives for nearly two years. Work environments are changing, which is creating a rotating set of stressors for the workforce that leadership must address. Workers are more isolated, their workplaces have changed dramatically, and they are facing challenges like Zoom fatigue and a lack of staffing resources. A new year provides a new opportunity for leaders to step back, think about the state of their organization and, ultimately, turn the page going forward to a brighter day, recognizing that everyone needs more engagement and vitality.

Join us to discuss how organizations can move toward positive outcomes and engage all levels of leadership in saving lives and reducing injuries. Using examples from the field, DEKRA Chief Client Officer Jim Spigener and DEKRA Vice President Mike Mangan will explore how leaders can use good governance, adaptive leadership skills, an improved culture and change management to help boost employee engagement.

What you will learn:
  • Examine how to engage employees more effectively to strengthen your safety culture.
  • Explain how leadership can support workers feeling detached from the workplace and their peers.
  • Assess role of good governance in change management.
  • Explore ways to build, or refresh, a culture of learning in the workplace.
