Gulf States Shipbuilders Consortium

Last week I delivered the keynote address at the annual Gulf States Shipbuilders Consortium conference in Pensacola, Florida. The audience was made up of shipyard owners (both large and small), HR and training professionals, talent recruiting firms and training development professionals. Many manufactured aircraft carriers and cruisers for the Navy. They asked me to address the topic of Employee Engagement and why it was essential within a manufacturing environment. I provided facts and details about why employee engagement is critical, such as improving revenue growth by 147%, that 73% of our US population is NOT ENGAGED and costing as much as $450 billion to our economy. Also, high levels of engagement improve output and productivity and ability to recruit top talent. After providing the factual data, I focused on what shipbuilders and manufacturers specifically need to do to improve employee engagement and to create an engagement culture.

They wonder whether they should address Vision/ Mission, Culture and Brand Purpose with internal resources, or secure the help of their agencies and consulting firms?
