#TChat Preview: Employee Engagement And Putting Thanks In The Bank

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, April 23, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about building a cultural advantage, and this week we are talking again about creating a high-engagement climate and culture.

We know why employee engagement matters, and that’s why we keep talking about it on our show; the importance of creating a climate of support and encouragement in the workplace cannot be over-stated. By creating a climate and culture of appreciation with a few simple strategies, you and your organization will receive huge payoffs in your employee retention, satisfaction, and performance.

Our guests will share six ways you can take your T.H.A.N.K.S. to the bank, and this will be an acronym to remember. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about creating an high-engagement culture with this week’s guests: Lisa Ryan, MBA, Founder and Chief Appreciation Strategist at Grategy and author of The Upside of Down Times and Teresa Andreani, Executive Life Coach at Work In Progress Consulting Group and adjunct faculty member in the Department of Psychology at Cleveland State University.

Sneak Peek: Employee Engagement and Gratitude

We spoke briefly with Lisa in a G+ Hangout to learn a little about how employee engagement can be as simple as “Thank You”.
