New Insights into the Engagement Challenge
Employee engagement is not a new concept. Most employers recognize that engaged employees produce more and stay longer in an organization that treats them well, listens to their needs and helps them develop. And while most organizations measure employee perceptions in some fashion, few have been successful building, sustaining and leveraging employee engagement to create tangible business outcomes. The challenge has intensified with the emergence of a new generation in the workforce, heightened international competition and the unparalleled pace of change in the world. It’s what we call a VUCA world – full of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
Unlocking People Performance through Innovation
Three leading organizations, on the cutting edge of this field, have come together to found a research community of practice engineered to advance the global state of engagement. The Conference Board, Deloitte and Sirota are pleased to announce the formation of The Engagement InstituteTM.
This research community of practice consists of cross-industry leaders who will partner with experts and work collaboratively to shape how organizations understand and drive engagement through a series of research activities and peer learning opportunities. Together, we will uncover new insights and develop new practices which drive continuous engagement improvement and quantifiable business impact.
How To Become Involved
We are excited to announce two options for being a part of The Engagement Institute:
- Join The Engagement Institute as a Research Fellow. Research Fellows have the opportunity to guide the annual priorities, participate in our ongoing series of webinars, shape the research agenda, attend our annual Engagement Summit, access our full suite of proprietary research and insights, visit top organizations to learn about their engagement practices, and participate to the degree you choose in a Research Working Group (led by experts, this group brings executives together to conduct research to solve a specific business issue, identify best practices, document findings and gain insights). Research Fellows lead engagement efforts at their respective companies and are the thought leaders who will drive the conversations and change the way we think about employee engagement. The only request to join is a sustaining subsidy of USD $12,500 per year from each Research Fellow organization members which includes full participation of two executives, a unique developmental opportunity for senior leaders.
