Communicators Conference Takes On Employee Engagement

The 2007 Ragan Corporate Communicators Conference, held in Chicago May 8-10, kept the PR party rolling with an abundance of information geared to help executives bring

six tracks attendees could follow. While all of the sessions directly addressed challenges faced and opportunities presented in today's communications landscape, employee

engagement was front-of-mind in a number of presentations. How can an organization use social media and new innovation to engage employees? How can top-level executives use

internal blogs to directly communicate with peers and co-workers? How can you use speaking opportunities to motivate and inspire employees?
