The DallasHR Employee Engagement Round Table provides a venue for
sharing ideas and best practices that promote and build employee
engagement within an organization. Areas of focus include, but are not
limited to, recruiting and onboarding, empowerment, professional
development, career vision, rewards and recognition, the
employee/supervisor relationship, and performance evaluation.
Meetings are for DallasHR Members only and is an open forum format so
whatever is top-of-mind that day ultimately drives the discussion. The
broad experience base of our members offers a wealth of deep, insightful
thinking. If your company is struggling with an HR problem or
considering a strategic HR initiative, chances are high others in the
group already have direct or indirect experience in those areas. Bring
your experience and stories to the meeting, come and learn from others’
successes and failures, and leave with a nugget of helpful insight you
can take back to your workplace.
Be sure to join the Employee Engagement community in HRConnect
to continue the conversation.
