The Great Workplace Signature Program

Inspired by the UNC system engagement survey and its results, Employee Leadership, Learning and Engagement is excited to announce its newest leadership Signature Program. Because it starts with managers and leaders - you are the critical difference between a very good organization and a great organization. In the best organizations, leaders at all levels have a strong commitment to creating a high trust environment. Indeed, enhancing trust in the workplace, in the marketplace, and with other key stakeholders is the central task of effective leadership.

Trust facilitates greater cooperation, commitment, and engagement among employees. It also allows decisions to  be made more quickly, and with less resistance. High trust organizations become more boundaryless, more flexible, and more agile. Your efforts in this area will support your team in becoming a high performing one. If you're a leader looking to take your workplace to the next level, this signature program is for you. 

What is it?

Having received the UNC system engagement survey results powered by ModernThink, the survey partner behind the Great Colleges to Work For program, we thought it was perfect timing to launch this signature program.

This 3-part (3 hour each) program is based on the book "The Great Workplace: How to Build It. How to Keep It, and Why It Matters" by Michael Burchell and Jennifer Robin of the Great Place to Work Institute and producers of the fortune 100 best companies to work for annual list.
