Keeping employees engaged while minimizing turnover is a crucial component of institutional success, but unfortunately, many colleges and universities are hampered by a culture of disengagement. One recent study found that 52 percent of faculty members said they were not engaged in their work, a further 14 percent were actively disengaged, and only 34 percent reported feeling engaged with their jobs.*

How can higher ed leaders address this common challenge by actively transforming disengagement into engagement, keeping academic faculty and staff members on the job and helping them to support student and institutional success?

To explore this issue, Human Capital Media Research and Advisory Group collaborated with Cornerstone OnDemand and Ellucian to create the 2016 Employee Engagement and Retention in Higher Education Survey, which asked nearly 500 higher ed leaders about how their institutions are engaging their workforce. Attend this prerecorded webcast to learn the results of the survey, as well as some best practices for engaging and retaining your institution’s employees.

Topics will include:

  • The importance of employee engagement to institutional success
  • How schools with low turnover rates are engaging their employees
  • The top drivers of faculty and staff attrition
  • How institutions can improve student outcomes through employee engagement
