Jason Anthoine and Mark Mohammadpour have been popular speakers sharing expert tips and tricks to drive better employee engagement and internal communications at Advanced Learning Institute conferences and virtual trainings. Link below to a podcast from our friends at IC Pro to hear the data behind what employees really want to feel connected to their workplace.

It’s possible the answer has changed without us even knowing. How can we keep on top of what our employees want and lead these conversations? Our latest guests offer their answers. 

We talked to Jason Anthoine and Mark Mohammadpour on how to actively connect to employees. Tune in to hear how they dove into the data and found that the answer might be more “old-fashioned” than you’d think. Also, we dive into whether internal communicators should take on employee wellness initiatives.
