THE BUSINESS OF RELATIONSHIPS: DEVELOPING HEALTHY AND HAPPY EMPLOYEES

Did you know that employees who have meaningful relationships at work are seven times more likely to be engaged in their job, treat customers better, take fewer sick days, have fewer workplace accidents, share their opinions and collaborate more, and feel more committed to their current company?

Creating an environment where friendships are encouraged and nurtured benefits both the company and the employee.

Meaningful friendships at work are effective solutions for employee retention, increased engagement, customer service, and increased revenue. Employees who have friendships at work (where they spend more time than any other place) show an increase in good health and overall happiness in all aspects of their lives.

This fun and interactive presentation teaches the best ways to build a culture of friendliness in appropriate, effective, and healthy ways.

- Customized for each audience, attendees will:

- Discover the latest research on how relationships at work impact employee engagement and retention

- Identify the three requirements of all healthy relationships and how they work together in our organizations

- Decide which of the three requirements would make the biggest positive difference in your organizational culture

Each audience will learn how to best assess which type is their go-to, and learn what actions they can to take to overcome their loneliness and create a more meaningful community in their lives.

As a result of this program, attendees will:

- Describe the three requirements of relationships
