Eye On Industry – Episode 8: Employee Engagement During Uncertain Times

Welcome to our eighth episode of the IE Eye on Industry Podcast.

Today, we’re going to take a look at employee engagement and the importance of gratitude in the workplace.

As we all know, the pandemic has had some emotional impact on us all. Whether it be the natural stress related to the uncertainty in the world, quarantining, or re-adjusting your basic routines with your family to remain safe — this environment has been one of the most difficult in recent memory.

Even the simple act of remote work or going back to your job with re-configured shop floors or new operating procedures can be overwhelming for even the most resilient and productive staffers.

But as you’ll soon find out – addressing the human element of your business is sometimes easier than you think – and can drive meaningful increases in productivity and profitability during times when morale is low.

Today we’ve invited Lisa Ryan, Chief Appreciation Strategist at Grategy, to talk about the importance of employee engagement and strategies to strengthen your workplace culture during these uncertain times.

Lisa is an award- winning speaker and author of ten books. Her expertise includes: strengthening workplace culture, improving employee engagement, increasing customer retention, and initiating gratitude strategies (“Grategies”) for personal and professional benefit.

We’re excited to have Lisa join us today.
