Hauppauge, NY (PRESS RELEASE – October 2, 2009) – Dale Carnegie Training®, the international leader in performance-based workforce training and solutions, announces Global Re-Engagement Day, a free world-wide initiative to equip business leaders with the tools to re-engage their employees. The first initiative of its kind, Global Re-Engagement Day kicks off on October 5th with free 2-hour “Employee Re-Engagement” sessions at Dale Carnegie Training locations across the map. By dedicating a day to re-engaging clients in their territories, Dale Carnegie Training hopes to restore employee confidence as well as to re-energize and refocus efforts on success in today’s workplace.
“All companies must address the issue of employee engagement – especially given today’s current economic climate of uncertainty and fear. It’s good business – plain and simple,” says Peter Handal, chairman, CEO and president of Dale Carnegie Training. “Statistics show that engaged employees deliver four times more value to the organization than non-engaged employees and are 87 percent less likely to leave than their non-engaged colleagues.” Handal adds, “We consider at Global Re-Engagement Day a ‘call to action’ and hope that businesses worldwide, no matter their size or area of focus, will join together to improve employee engagement in these difficult economic climate.”
Designed for CEOs, COOs, VPs and HR executives alike, Dale Carnegie Training’s Global Re-Engagement Day provides the tools necessary to forge ahead in these difficult economic times, thus unlocking limitless possibilities in the future and ensuring long-term growth. Participants in Global Re-Engagement Day will learn to strike the ideal balance between attitudes, skills and knowledge; stepping out of their comfort zones and honing in on the main principles of engagement such as creating a clear, compelling vision of the future that employees help co-create and making employees feel valued and important.
