“LSA’s Employee Engagement Training is a unique engagement approach.  The experience helps leaders mobilize employees around critical company and department initiatives.

By working on real-time business imperatives, the Leading for Employee Engagement tools become immediately relevant and produce measurable business results.”
Senior Director | Fortune 1000 Technology Company

We Believe that Employee Engagement Surveys are Only as Good as the Actions Taken
Did you know that:

  • Over 90% of large companies now conduct employee engagement surveys, but only 20% of business leaders believe that their engagement initiatives are driving business outcomes.
  • When employees see action taken after an engagement survey, they are 12 times more likely to be engaged the following year.
  • Strong employee engagement can lead to 2-3% increase in operating margin while weak engagement results in a 1-2% decrease in both operating margin and net profit.

The majority of employees tell us that they are working harder, feeling more pressure to perform, being asked to do more with less, and spending too much time in reactive firefighting mode in the face of seemingly constant change and uncertainty.

It’s easy to believe that your employees are engaged when they work long hours, and you have low turnover. However, people often put in long hours begrudgingly and stay in their jobs for reasons other than being fully engaged.

Revenue, profitability, sales, service, productivity, customer retention, quality, efficiency, and bottom line performance are all compromised if you have a workforce in which engagement is less than what it should be.

Is there a way to help your people avoid disengagement given the business challenges you face? The answer is, yes! Our Employee Engagement  training shows leaders and managers how to create an environment in which employees are engaged in spite of business obstacles and challenges they face.

But Engaged in What?
While Employee Engagement is on the minds of most HR and business leaders today, an important question is not being asked often enough: “You want your employees to be engaged, but engaged in what?”

We believe that Employee Engagement is worthless and even detrimental if your employees and teams are focused on priorities that don’t align with your key business priorities.

Research shows that over one third of the workforce does not understand or buy into their organization’s business strategy.  This makes successful strategy execution a Herculean task. In contrast, enabling your workforce to be fully engaged in your business strategy drives strategy realization and increased competitiveness.

Employee Engagement Training Program Description
Employee Engagement Training provides your managers with proven tools and strategies to enable them to mobilize their employees’ energy and commitment to be engaged and aligned with your business strategy, mission critical priorities, and improvement initiatives.

Research has identified over 300 engagement drivers and confirms that only a “vital few” create significant engagement gains. We have synthesized these top drivers into the ACE™ meta-model that acts as the cornerstone of Leading for Employee Engagement.

Thank you! Your learning strategy insights flipped our approach from a content-driven design to one where business strategy and relevancy drives the leadership programs we aimed to redesign.

This investment more than proved its worth – not only did it improve our leadership development program redesign, but it also was like a mini executive seminar that stretched our experienced L&D team’s thinking.

We partnered with LSA to help custom design, deliver, and measure an advanced new employee on-boarding process. It was well thought out and bought into by sales leadership.  The combination of targeted sales tools, technology, coaching, performance plans, training, and reinforcement made all the difference.  The solution quantifiably improved new employee and hiring manager satisfaction and increased the speed to sales quota for new hires.

I would highly recommend LSA Global for any sales enablement team looking to increase the engagement and speed to productivity of their sales force. We are excited to implement the program globally as we continue to scale.

Having a training outsourcing partner like LSA to support our talent management needs has been a real blessing. In an emerging company where typically you can’t afford the infrastructure necessary to provide a full range of offerings, having an external partner like LSA has been a blessing.

They deeply understand our business and our culture.   They do a great job on a wide range of customized training, consulting, and coaching solutions for us.

For us, they are definitely better than having our own internal Training and Organizational Development function.  They always do what it takes to hit the mark.
