Building a Culture of Trust in the Workplace

Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 1pm ET           Duration: 60 minutes

Finger pointing, poor communication, bickering, gossip, anxiety and turnover -- all signs that your workplace may have a trust problem. Employees may not trust management (or each other), or management may not trust employees. Either way, it’s a serious problem that requires immediate action. Fortunately you can take steps to rebuild trust and make it a part of your workplace culture. This webinar will show you how to get started. (more details below)

* Approved for 1.0 recertification credit hour through HRCI & SHRM.


WHY ATTEND

Trust in the workplace is the foundation of innovation, productivity, morale and retention. Unfortunately, it’s on the decline. In fact, studies show that only 50 percent of people trust their employers (this includes employees, managers and executives).

It’s a problem that shouldn’t be ignored but most organizations do little about it. Why? Because they don’t know where to start. It’s a complex issue that involves everything from transparency and clarity of expectations to leadership consistency and communication (both formal and informal).

The leaders in your company either have high levels of "trust capital" to motivate and engage employees – or they don’t. The good news is that you can give them the knowledge they need to build a culture where trust is expected at every level of the organization. This program with Michael Kerr, internationally recognized expert on workplace culture, will give you a framework to address this critical topic.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Why trust matters: The benefits of creating a high-trust culture and the hidden and not-so-hidden costs associated with low trust 
  • How to train and develop managers to build “trust capital”
  • 10 specific techniques for building trust at work
  • How to rebuild trust when trust gets broken 
  • How to get every one of your employees to embrace your culture of trust and exude trustworthiness to your customers and vendors.
  • By the end of the session you’ll trust Mike when he tells you that trust matters - a lot!
