Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 22, 2013 1:08 PM

       Although the translation from French is a little rough, the article makes a good point. While employee's perceptions of their situation are valuable, they are not fundamentally the factor that most influences employee engagement.  

       The organization selects employees (although some company's allow some measure of self-selection), so candidates who  demonstrate  real positive regard for the company and the type of work they will do, ought to be hired. This "good fit" is a sound foundation for later engaging the employee.  

      Once selected, it is the work situation interpreted and shaped primarily by the manager and somewhat by co-workers that are critical in engaging employees. 

     In other words by putting employee in a situation that they value and where they can become valued contributors, positive employee perceptions are formed and make it very likely that they will become engaged.

Jacqui Hogan's curator insight, July 24, 2013 6:09 AM

The key to engagement is understanding individual motivation and having a variety of options. There is a tendency to assume that everyone is motivated by money (not true) and that one option fits everyone. This is lazy thinking, and reflects uncaring management. Thanks for sharing Ron.
