West Hartford Chamber Hosting Seminar on Employee Motivation Wednesday

The West Hartford Chamber still has seats available for an upcoming seminar on employee motivation. The presenter will be Eleta Jones from the University of Hartford’s Center for Professional Development. The seminar takes place tomorrow, November 18th, at 7:30 a.m.

Here’s more from the Chamber:

Do your employees perform well, but you’re concerned that they’ll be less motivated because they don’t see ways to advance? Do you need to find ways to help your employees grow and develop so they will continue to feel motivated at work? We will discuss strategies for motivating and involving employees that will keep them learning, growing and feeling needed by the organization. Two employee development tools will be used and discussed during the seminar to give participants a “hands-on” experience with the exercises you can use to keep your employees growing and developing.
