This is not an easy time to be working in the public sector. Heated budget battles and rhetoric about the size, function, scope, and effectiveness of government have generated criticism not just of government but also of the public servants who deliver government services. One proven response to maintaining government effectiveness in this difficult environment is to improve the level of employee engagement. Research has clearly and convincingly shown that improving employee engagement will drive higher levels of organizational performance, reduce turnover and yield other important workforce benefits. This webinar will focus on empirically-proven approaches to improve employee engagement in government jurisdictions and agencies.




  • Identify what employee engagement is and why it matters - particularly in government
  • Determine why measuring engagement is important, how to measure it, and how to act on the results 
  • Examine the key drivers of employee engagement and the role of HR in improving employee engagement
  • Evaluate what public sector organizations have done to improve - and sustain - high levels of engagement
  • Analyze how to get started on the road to improved employee engagement
