Motivating Today's Workforce
Date and time
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM, April 18, 2017

Successful managers and supervisors know how to foster an environment in which employees become self-motivated, positive, and dedicated. Today's workplace requires more than just fair pay and a good benefits package to achieve such a condition.
