Around the Table in 90 Minutes: Building Best Practices for Employee Engagement

Workshop (Running Concurrently)

From store clerks to chefs on the kitchen line, employees are the unsung ambassadors with the potential to propel the food waste message across all corners of the supply chain to the forefront of operations. For any waste reduction campaign to be a real success you need to involve all of your team, as it is everyone’s responsibility to make the most from our food.  What approaches can your organization develop to implement effective employee engagement strategies? Fortunately, you do not have to start from scratch. This workshop boils down to an introductory presentation into successful employee engagement models, small group discussions on  ways to implement or build on these practices in their own organizations, and a share-out of learnings and ideas.
