Employee engagement is one of the holy grails of the HR world. We want employees who are interested in what they’re doing (at least most of the time; we all have an off-day) and do their best for their employer. Like respect, you have to earn employees’ interest, although I do take the view that in parallel employees should make the best of their opportunities and try to interest themselves in what’s going on and not wait passively to be engaged. When I was asked to give new and interesting views on employee engagement I mulled it over a while. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all method. You have to tailor your engagement activities and approach to your environment. Generally speaking there’s nothing new under the sun, just new interpretations. So here are my thoughts on employee engagement.
