    It is a well-known fact that employee engagement has a significant impact on organizational outcomes. However, what motivates public sector employees is different from that which motivates the private sector. Motivating PSU employees can be a challenge due budgetary constraints and the fact that their performance is always under public scrutiny and therefore open to criticism. So how do managers in the public sector drive performance - do they focus on intrinsic rewards and motivation, or a higher purpose of doing public good and serving others. Attend this session to find out.

    Workplace Application: Understand what drives the public sector and how it differs from the private sector

    In a stressful world, mental health is increasingly becoming critical as mental health influences how we think, feel, and behave in daily life. It also affects our ability to cope with stress, overcome challenges, build relationships, and recover from life’s setbacks and hardships. Being mentally or emotionally healthy is much more than being free from depression and psychological issues. Rather it is about the presence of many positive characteristics!

    It is a well-known fact that employee engagement has a significant impact on organizational outcomes. However, what motivates public sector employees is different from that which motivates the private sector. Motivating PSU employees can be a challenge due budgetary constraints and the fact that their performance is always under public scrutiny and therefore open to criticism. So how do managers in the public sector drive performance - do they focus on intrinsic rewards and motivation, or a higher purpose of doing public good and serving others. Attend this session to find out.

    Workplace Application: Understand what drives the public sector and how it differs from the private sector

    Is Inclusion for PwD a CSR activity for your organization or a genuine understanding of their strength?

    Do you know the way to include PwD employees at work and in society in general?

    There is a dire need to shift your mindset around operationalizing inclusion and help build the shift from “Inclusion to Inclusive Working & Development”. This workshop will ask a set of hard questions around mindset shifts from “CSR to true Inclusion”, around “unconsciously offering Grace Performance Standards”, around “Comfort Zones and Tick in the Box Inclusion”, and will challenge the approach to tiptoeing around the “Elephant In the Room”.

    Workplace Application: The Workshop Leaders will leverage gamification to create Experiential Shifts in your ability to work better with Your PwD colleagues by changing the narrative.

    Several studies show that a very small percentage of employees are fully engaged at work, causing huge losses due to low productivity. Insensitive interactions have a way of eroding employee health and performance. Treating employees with empathy, taking care of their needs makes them want to do their best for you - not because it's nice or ethical or politically correct, but because it's effective and gets results.

    Workplace application: The session will focus on Attracting and retaining talent using holistic people policies
