Science has revealed more about the brain in the last five years than in the previous thousand. The implications for organizational health and prosperity, as well as employee retention and wellness, are nothing short of astounding. Much of what has been assumed and thought to be true about effective management techniques and human relations in business turns out to be not simply ineffective, but dangerous.

Don Rheem, the founder and CEO of E3 Solutions, delivers a primer on the science of employee engagement. He will review some of the latest research findings and neuroscience directly related to employee behavior in the workplace and how HR professionals and other organizational leaders can achieve literally breakthrough results in workplace performance by creating workplace conditions that fit with what we now know the brain needs to truly thrive.

For a sneak peek, check out Don's TEDx talk:  How Can Work Save Our Relationships?
