Why work must change - Glenn Elliott
LSBU Alumni's Annual Hitesh Tailor Lecture with special guest, London South Bank University Alumnus Glenn Elliott (BSc Computer Science, Class of 1991)
Have you ever wondered how companies like AirBnb and Google continue to innovate and dominate the market?
As this year?s guest speaker for the Annual Hitesh Tailor Lecture Series, Glenn Elliot will be giving his insight into how companies do exactly that.
Launched in 2011 by LSBU alumnus and long-term donor Hitesh Tailor, these annual lectures welcome notable alumni back to the University to share their experiences. Glenn is an employee engagement expert, entrepreneur and co-author of Build It: The Rebel Playbook for Employee Engagement which is due out in February.
Glenn will tell us how companies stock market returns are twice the general market and their voluntary staff turnover is half. These companies are disrupting markets and beating their competition. Two decades of employee engagement measurement puts the UK at only 30% engaged ? a figure that has barely improved since records began. But some of the world?s best companies have been quietly doing things differently.
In this inspiring yet practical keynote, Glenn will be showing us how these out-performing companies get more from their people giving us practical takeaways into The Engagement Bridge? ? his ten-step model for building a high engagement, high innovation culture.
