    December MHRA Meeting


    Children's Farm Home Historic Old School
    4455 NE Highway 20
    Corvallis, OR 97330

    FREE to MHRA members, $15 dollars for non-members



    Join us for our December Membership Meeting as Deborah Jeffries of HR Answers presents: C comes before E: Creating Engagement through Culture Management

    C comes before E: Creating Engagement through Cultural Management Engagement. One word but it means so many things to so many people. “Executives view it as profitability and productivity”. “Supervisors and managers view it as getting employees to do more”. “Employees view it as being more content and more involved in their organizations. “HR views it as an employee relations solution”. While everyone would agree that engagement is beneficial and good for all parties, culture is often overlooked or ignored. Organizations can't jump to E (engagement) before they address C (culture). Join us to learn why culture is the cornerstone to engagement and that by evaluating, analyzing, implementing and measuring organizations can achieve the once elusive; engagement.
