« back to classes page
Registration deadline: June 7th

15 CEUs/CPH units
People who join non-profit agencies typically value the opportunity to contribute to a mission as well as the monetary benefits. But they also value being valued and working in a great culture. An unengaging culture can lead to lower performance and higher turnover.

How does an agency build an engaging and high-performing culture?

Participants in this class will explore research regarding employee engagement and compare commonly used employee engagement strategies.  We will develop selection and onboarding strategies, applying concepts from two contemporary how-to books related to engagement. By the close of the class, participants will have developed a plan of action for the agency in which they work or a simulated agency.
Class size is limited to 24.
