Leveraging Employee Engagement to Bolster Student Success
Member Price: $49
Non-member Price: $199

Presenter: Jon Sexton, PhD (Read Bio)

Throughout the higher education landscape, there is a significant focus on achieving strong recruitment numbers, achieving high levels of student success, and ultimately maximizing retention. Challenges associated with these goals are amplified based on ongoing challenges for many institutions in regards to dwindling state and federal financial support, increased emphasis on identifying department efficiencies (frequently manifesting as a need to do more with less), and overall budget constraints which can hinder annual increases and professional development opportunities. These challenges pose significant risks to employee engagement, which plays a pivotal role in helping your department achieve goals associated with student success. 

Regardless of institution type (public or private, 2-year or 4-year) higher education professionals need to understand the importance of employee engagement and leverage strategies to maximize it within every team they work with or oversee. Placing an emphasis on employee engagement can significantly buffer the aforementioned challenges many professionals in higher education face today. This webinar will provide an overview of the importance of employee engagement, explore strategies for measurement, and provide tangible initiatives you can implement to help your professional and student teams thrive.
