Research from the Hay Group finds that companies with highly engaged people outperform firms with the most disengaged folks—by 54% in employee retention, 89% in customer satisfaction, and 400% in revenue growth. It’s no wonder that HR Directors and CEO’s from around the world agree that employee engagement is of critical importance.

To engage a multi-culturally, diverse global community like Dubai, it is essential to honor the diversity of the workplace, to allow employees to be there authentic selves and to recognize the value that each employee brings to the team.

In this one-day event HR Managers, Directors and workplace leaders will learn the tools necessary to truly engage a diverse workforce leading to higher productivity, greater team performance and a happier, healthy workplace.
