Firm Engagement Strategies: No more Rabbits!

Firm leaders have struggled with instituting the latest activity, reward or benefit in order to improve the engagement of their people. Sometimes their efforts work, but too often they fall short. One managing partner stated that she has no more rabbits in her hat, a sentiment that many firm leaders share. Their attempts to improve employee engagement are met with "meh" instead of energized commitment and discretionary effort. Why is it so difficult to get people motivated to care?

This presentation draws on human motivation science and behavioral economics to explore the concept of employee engagement and to offer practical suggestions of how your firm can be more effective in creating an engaging environment that entices your people to engage.
