Bite-Sized Distance Learning Programme: Being An Engaged Employee

In today’s rapidly changing world, the global economy is creating both risks and opportunities for organisations. Arguably, an organisation’s greatest asset is its people. This is especially true if they are willing to give that extra discretionary effort. This can have substantial benefits to the bottom line: the business objectives. First class organisations increasingly recognise this potential and the need to foster a new kind of relationship with employees. This is driving the challenge of employee engagement.


Wherever you are on the spectrum described, reading this overview suggests that you, or your business, have identified that the ability to become engaged and engage others is important.

Our short online programme is intended to challenge your thinking about:

  • What does being an engaged employee mean?
  • How do I become engaged at work?
  • What actions am I going to take?

During our programme, we encourage participants to keep an open mind throughout and to link what they have heard or read to their own practice or activity. Then, through open-minded reflection, create their own practical action plan to move forward. All units in the programme include practical activities, informational videos, fact sheets, and valuable information and tips.

Programme Overview

There are three units in the programme. The first unit: What is being an engaged employee? has a number of steps and creates an opportunity for:

  • Understanding what being an engaged employee is.
  • Assessing your current engagement levels.

The second unit: How do I become an engaged employee? is about you. It has a series of steps and activities to help you begin to plan for action. In this unit participants will:

  • Explore the factors that support you become a more engaged employee.
  • Understand what affects you when becoming engaged.
  • Identify how you can become more engaged.

The third unit: Action Planning is about moving forward. It uses everything that has been reflected on, thought about or learnt during units one and two, and through the 7-Day Challenge identifies what is wanted or needed to be done next. The 7-Day Challenge can be repeated and, as a result of experiences, it can be adapted.

During the programme, participants will be guided to either complete an activity or write some reflections. The idea is that these activities and reflections will add support to fulfil the 7-Day Challenge at the end of the programme.

The cost of this programme is £24.99 per person and can be accessed at any time, from any location (subject to necessary internet access) and should take approximately 10 hours to complete, including activities.
