Agencies are struggling to maintain a motivated and engaged workforce amid today’s challenging and uncertain environment. The Partnership’s Building a Culture of Engagement: Virtual Training Series helps frontline supervisors and managers use appreciation, communication and empowerment, known as the ACE model, to engage employees. These online training sessions use research-supported methods, which have been successfully applied across government, to help address real-time challenges.

Through this training, participants will:

  • Discuss insights and best practices with employee engagement experts, experienced senior executives and leaders from top-ranked agencies in the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government® rankings
  • Develop an engagement-enhancing plan of action to implement right away
  • Build a network of support by engaging with peer leaders from across the federal government
  • Receive the ACE workbook and other resources, which include action-oriented tips, strategies and takeaways

“The format was great. The length of sessions was perfect. The participants were knowledgeable and professional. The guest speakers had real world experiences to share. Overall excellent sessions.”
