Employee Engagement 
Strategy People Area
As many things in life, employee engagement is a journey.  Present day AT&T is the result of several large companies coming together to create a 280,000 person community.  Each company brought its own culture and there are different cultures within different business units and regions.  Add to the mix that AT&T is a global company, the importance and challenge of creating a high degree of employee engagement becomes clear.
The story that will be shared will be one of AT&T’s journey down the employee engagement path and the initiatives underway to make AT&T a great place to work.  The story will share how AT&T measures engagement, what activities take place to increase engagement and what higher engagement brings to the business from the perspective of employees and shareholders. This is intended to be an interactive conversations.  Please don’t forget to jot down your questions.

Learning Objectives:

1. What is employee engagement?
2. Why does it matter?
3. Why is employee engagement a journey and not an event?
