    Jack Appleman, corporate writing instructor and author of the newly released 10 Steps to Successful Business Writing (second edition), will facilitate a dynamic webcast, “Wowing Workers with Words: Writing to Drive Employee Engagement.” He will lead participants through a series of challenging writing exercises—which they can submit for Jack’s feedback!

    Whether a manager or practitioner or both, you know that the success of the business you’re part of is based on people. The biggest cost in your organization is also your employees and they are the biggest asset. When they’re chosen well, intentionally developed, and provided with career options engagement soars. The business begins to fail if the wrong employees are chosen or the right employees are chosen but not developed.

    Managing your team well requires you as manager to monitor and tune key aspects of their time in the business. At the same time, you’ll be managing your own career along the same paths. The road is never straight – there are many paths that can be taken.  

    In this webinar, you’ll learn to:

    • Hire more effectively leveraging Job Benchmarks
    • Create onboarding processes for every promotion, not just the first
    • Create a Career Map to help you plan your promotion and succession
    • Retain by engagement
