Many organizations treat the term employee engagement as though it’s laden with magical properties. Indeed, engaged employees put forth more discretionary effort, buoy their colleagues and coworkers, and value their own individual successes in alignment with the achievements of the organization. Yet, questions remain about the elements that make up engagement, and how such components can be fostered and grown within organizations.
To explore this topic further, HCI and Achievers conducted an original research project in Spring 2013 to better understand how employee engagement is cultivated and maintained by three key players: the organization, the managers, and the employees. When these three groups work cohesively on building and sustaining engagement, the results are profound. It is vital to recognize how these components must work together to really deliver on engagement initiatives and increased levels of involvement among employees, and this groundbreaking report provides that essential information.
Key takeaways from this report:
- Learn what opportunities and challenges face managers today in regards to supporting active employee engagement
- Find out what actions and behaviors you can begin doing at your own organization to improve engagement levels
- Discover how managers, employees and the organization, when they take ownership of employee engagement, can reap its benefits and better prepare for the future
