Inside Voices: Purpose-Driven Employee Engagement as a Catalyst for Change

Start Date:7/22/2020

Start Time:2:00 PM EDT

Duration:60 minutes


We’re living in a time of unprecedented change – some of it devastating, some of it long overdue. The impacts of the global pandemic and our current reckoning with systemic racism will be felt for decades. People have united to demand justice, safety, dignity, economic security, and a complete re-imagining of the institutions and practices that shape our lives. 

It’s no wonder employees are challenging employers to take concrete action, accelerating revolution from the bottom up. The result: a new level of employee engagement is required.

This WE-hosted discussion will help inform and inspire marketing and communication leaders on how to re-imagine employee engagement by building and connecting to a more powerful sense of purpose within their organizations.

Featuring industry leaders representing top brands, this webcast will tackle a range of topics such as:
  • Moving beyond standard definitions of employee engagement and forging deeper connections with employees
  • Building a durable purpose. Is your purpose strong enough to weather storms and flexible enough to grow?
  • Identifying actions that build resilient, sustainable change versus in-moment reactions
  • Navigating internal stakeholders and synthesizing multiple points of view
  • How to bring empathy, urgency and action as an agitator for change within your organization
  • Key results from WE's recent study, "Leading with Purpose in an Age Defined by It," will be shared
