Battling Boredom in the Workplace

Speaker: Don Francis, Director of Human Resources - City of Hagerstown

Did you know that in multiple recent nationwide studies, we’ve found that almost 70% of our employees have rated themselves bored at work?  How do we recognize “Bored-Out”?  And how do we battle it and get people back on task and reengaged?
