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.
