What’s the best way to build an engaged workforce?
Whether you’re a leader within a consulting firm or a consultant who advises clients on questions about management and leadership, there’s a good chance you’ve spent a lot of time over the last year thinking about the topic of employee engagement. Engagement might not be a new concept, either for consultants or their clients, but it is one that feels more relevant right now than ever. The pandemic has, after all, had a profound impact on the relationship between leaders and their workforces. So, on this episode, we’re joined by Pamela Hackett—CEO of consulting firm Proudfoot and author of “Manage to Engage” —as we take a deep dive into the world of engagement. We’ll look at what it takes to build an engaged workforce, and we’ll explore the role that consulting firms can play in helping clients take their first steps along that journey.
