The Heard and the Heard-Nots: The Impact of Listening at Work

Webinar Replay

According to global research from The Workforce Institute at UKG, four in five employees feel that not all colleagues are heard equally, and one in three would rather quit than speak up about challenges and common concerns that keep them from performing their best.

Where have organizations dropped the ball? And which employees are most at risk of going unheard?

Employee listening extends well beyond annual engagement surveys. For high-performing organizations with a great employee experience, it’s a daily activity for people managers and executive leadership alike.

In this webinar replay, you will learn:

  • Why the voice of the employee is central to an engaged workforce with a strong sense of belonging
  • How to discover which employees do and do not feel heard today, and who wants to be heard more going forward
  • How to develop strategies to create a culture of listening that supports retention and drives individual and organizational performance

Ensure everyone at your organization has a voice. Complete the form to instantly start watching the webinar!
