Webinar: Get your team talking: The importance of leadership in promoting employee voice

Employee voice? It’s all about what your amazing employees share about themselves, their awesome colleagues, or how they feel about the organisation they call their work home.

However, leaders who not only listen to their team members but act upon the feedback they receive will see a whole host of business benefits. According to Josh Bersin, author of Elevating Equity, organisations are 12 times more likely to engage and retain employees and 8.5 times more likely to satisfy and retain customers when employee voice is properly embraced.

Sadly, it happens more often than we’d like – not-so-great leadership can sometimes put a damper on the voices of our valuable employees. They worry that their concerns won’t get the attention they deserve or, worse yet, that they might face frustration and consequences.

All of the above and more was discussed during our recent joint webinar with People Management Insight which focused on how to promote employee voice and reap the rewards.
