Embracing change


Can you name one quality that is as vital to organizations as life skills are to humans? That quality has to be change management. The reason for this being so is quite simple: nothing tests an organization’s mettle more than its ability to handle change, perhaps the single most important and inevitable development in its lifecycle.

How do organizations handle change? What does it take to embrace change, a continuous, fluid and ongoing reality within organizations? TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for the human resources areas, will explain this vital aspect of an organization at a webinar that it is organizing on October 1.

Creating an Engaged Workforce


If there is one component that determines whether an organization is an average one or an excellent one, it has to be the extent to which it keeps its employees engaged. An organization that brings about a degree of employee engagement can weather any storm, whether it is related to its people or its business.

Why is an engaged workforce any organization’s biggest asset? Simply because it associates itself with the organization’s values, business, and culture. Engaged employees like to think that they are working not for the organization’s, but their own good. That is the level of involvement that engaged employees have. When this is what employees, the organization’s greatest strength, thinks, then, such an organization is a winner all along.

While this is much true for any organization, the opposite of it is equally so: an organization in which the employees feel out of place or out of sync is doomed. When employees don’t have a sense of belonging towards the organization, it is impossible to expect them to give their best. Such employees will only keep looking for excuses to keep performing below par.

So then, how does an organization create an engaged workforce? This valuable learning can be gained from a webinar that TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for the areas of human resources, is organizing on September 25. Bob Verchota, owner and senior consultant for RPVerchota & Associates, a consulting firm, will be the speaker at this session.

Please visit TrainHR to enroll for this session.


Creating an engaged workforce is a work of art. It is a journey and not a destination. An engaged workforce is motivated, energetic, and fired up, and is enthusiastic to contribute to the organization. It goes without saying that such a workforce is always looking to enhance the organization’s reputation and working conditions, not to speak of the bottom-line.

Yet, sadly, two out of every three organizations fail to create an engaged workforce. This means that this is both a curse and a boon. A curse because it shows that way too many organizations are yet to take the steps needed to make the workforce an engaged one. It is also a godsend because it means that a bountiful opportunity awaits organizations that want to make its workforce an engaged one.

At this webinar, Bob will help the participants explore what factors facilitate or deter the employees in becoming engaged. He will suggest practical and tangible steps that they can take to make this happen.

He will cover the following areas over the sixty minutes of this webinar:

  • What is engagement and why it matters
  • The outcomes of an engaged workforce
  • The difference between satisfaction, happiness, and engagement
  • Understand benefits for the business and the individual
  • Foundational factors necessary for engagement to be possible
  • Factors that disengage employees
  • Strategies for creating an engaged workforce
  • The power of coaching and its link to engagement
  • Why compensation isn’t the answer
  • The link to vision, mission, and values
  • How management is a major barrier to engagement
  • Leadership competencies that influence engagement
  • Recruiting for an engaged workforce
  • Importance of creating a sense of community
  • Engagement and corporate social responsibility

Senior leadership, leaders responsible for work culture, HR directors and generalists, managers, supervisors, and team leaders, and board members will benefit from the learning imparted at this webinar.
