HP Software's community for IT leaders

Working hard or hardly working: What are your employees up to?

We need strategies to drive better engagement at work and improve work–life fulfillment outside of work.

Join us for this episode of Discover Performance Weekly, in which we discuss a recent study that found that only 13% of employees are engaged at work. HP Software evangelist and VP of Strategic Marketing Paul Muller discusses strategies to drive better engagement at work and improve worklife fulfillment with the following industry leaders:

  • Lou Markstrom, author, coach, and business and personal development consultant
  • Joshua Brusse, chief architect and CTO for HP Software APJ

The basis of the discussion is the Discover Performance article "Relationships drive a leader's success."
