May ILCMA Professional Development Event

The ILCMA Professional Development Committee Presents

Building and Sustaining Employee Engagement

The importance of employee engagement can’t be overstated – employee engagement strategies have been proven to reduce staff turnover, increase productivity, improve efficiency, and increase customer satisfaction. Most importantly, engaged employees are happier, both at work and in their lives.

Learn what causes employee engagement, what performance and productivity metrics best measure it, as well as leadership strategies to support a highly engaged corporate culture. How can organizations create and sustain a highly engaged, high performing culture?

Tom Walter is a “serial entrepreneur” and a principal in numerous companies. He is the Chief Culture Officer (CCO) for Tasty Catering—a corporate caterer and event planner that was recently named a Forbes Best Small Company in America. Tom is a national speaker and a published author on management and employee engagement. Tom will share insights about the link between company culture and performance as well as effective employee engagement practices he has learned through years of research and experience with organizations in the public and private sectors.

Greg Stopka is the Strategy and Innovation Manager at the Park District of Oak Park. He previously worked for the Alliance for Innovation, which works to inspires innovation in local government. Greg will explain why employee engagement is such a vital component of innovation and share the engagement processes and strategies that the Oak Park Park District is using to bring innovation back to the forefront of their organizational culture. Greg will also lead a short workshop for attendees to identify specific engagement strategies to bring back to their organizations.
