Interaction Associates to Lead Panel at the Human Capital Institute 2015 Employee Engagement Conference

BOSTON, MA – Interaction Associates (IA), the performance improvement experts and innovators in conscious collaboration, today announced it will present at the Human Capital Institute 2015 Employee Engagement Conference to be held in San Francisco, July 27-29. IA will host a session focused on helping organizations to empower managers and leaders to take increased ownership of employee engagement. Senior Consultant Patty McManus will lead a panel designed to help HR and Engagement professionals share the best in employee engagement strategies.

The theme of this year's conference – creating a culture of accountability, growth, and connection – aligns with Interaction Associates’ strength in using conscious collaboration to build Return on Involvement (TM). IA’s six years of research into trust, leadership and collaboration have shown that highly-collaborative, high-trust cultures create in their employees a shared responsibility for success.

McManus said, "We're delighted that HCI has concentrated this year's employee engagement conference on building involvement at all levels of the organization, and we look forward to sharing best practices in several industries on our lively and informative panel."

Patty McManus will lead the panel discussion, Helping Managers Use the Tools of Engagement: Lessons Learned. The panelists are:

Ellie Gates, Senior Director of Talent Development at Box,
Julie Turchin, Talent Portfolio Manager at Stanford University, and
Larry Decuir, Talent Management and Development Leader for Ernst & Young’s Assurance Practice in the Americas

In this session, the panelists will share:

  • Best practices for developing managers in a variety of environments (or industries).
  • Specific pointers to help your managers move from learning, to practicing, to competence.
  • Lessons learned about what works (and what doesn’t) to shift the culture using development and on-the-job support.
