The Towers Perrin Global Workforce Study: Achieve Growth by Attracting, Retaining & Engaging Top Talent
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) July 30, 2008
Towers Perrin and The Human Capital Institute (HCI) will take the mystery out of what makes employees tick, presenting eye opening findings from a global survey at an exclusive breakfast session for the business community.
As part of the survey findings, Towers Perrin identified a significant "engagement gap" -- the gap between the discretionary effort employees want to invest and companies' effectiveness at tapping into this effort to enhance business performance.
The study, titled "The Towers Perrin Global Workforce Study: Achieve Growth by Attracting, Retaining & Engaging Top Talent", is the largest of its kind, surveying nearly 90,000 workers worldwide, including 5,000 in Canada. The results provide unique strategic insight to enable companies to make smarter, more cost-effective workforce decisions -- ultimately, to enhance business performance and the bottom-line.
