What does it take to build strong teams that drive business results? This question is critical, with recent Gallup research showing employee engagement at an all-time low. To make matters worse, managers are increasingly expected to do more with less and face burnout and lack of enablement. To top it all off, companies globally experience $322 billion in lost productivity.


Recent research proves managers are the secret to unlocking top performance on teams and across organizations. In this panel, Bonusly’s Chief Customer Officer, Debra Squyres, ITAC Solutions’ Chief Administrative Officer, Charles Baughman, and Rechat’s Senior Director, People Operations David Gulley, will discuss why historically under-valuing and under-investing in managers has caused a culture and performance crisis. Then, they will dive into three actionable ways HR teams can partner with managers to drive performance and realize good managers' outsized impact on business success.


Learning Objectives:

  • Actionable steps to empower your people managers to drive performance and engagement
  • The critical role consistent feedback, both positive and constructive, plays in enabling high performance.
  • How prioritizing training and taking care of your managers leads to a stronger company culture
