REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 15, 2016) - GuideSpark, Inc., leading the transformation of how companies connect with employees, today announced that Joe Larocque, the company's co-founder and senior director of Product Management, will share his expertise and insights on how companies can connect and inspire their employees during the Northern California Human Resources Association's Engagement & Recognition Conference.
The presentation will take place on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at 9:45 a.m. PDT at Golden Gate University in San Francisco as part of the NCHRA event. Larocque will provide attendees with new strategies for how Human Resource professionals can break through all the noise and information employees are dealing with to connect them with critical information.
"Top employers understand that to keep employees engaged and motivated, they need to continually reinvent the workplace experience," said Larocque. "Although connecting with employees has become more challenging as technology, social media and demographic shifts all create more information and clutter, companies are realizing that to drive productivity, retention and business goals they must create buy-in and excitement among employees. I look forward to talking about why and how making those connections will help companies deliver improved business results."
During his session, "The Employee Lens: A Look at Engagement From the Other Side," Larocque will explain how employers must raise the bar and establish a true connection in order to engage and retain top-skilled talent. He will also talk about how one key area -- performance management -- is being completely overhauled and what companies need to do to connect with employees about how their performance will be measured moving forward.
HR professionals and business leaders interested in learning how to create an environment of continuous engagement are encouraged to attend this session.
