Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

You don't need to see any metrics to know whether your employees are engaged. You can feel it the moment you walk into your office, your store, or your worksite. Eventually, a general malaise and complacency can creep into your bottom line through slower time-to-market, lower productivity, rising absenteeism, and even increased accidents. But every organization that is willing to make a commitment can turn it around. When you build—and sustain—a culture of high engagement, you'll create the strongest competitive advantage you have.

Full employee engagement represents an alignment of maximum satisfaction for the individual with maximum contribution for the organization. The Engagement Equation explains the drivers of employee engagement, and how you can use improved engagement to execute strategy, reduce costs, and meet your organizational goals.

pragmatic advice drawn from working hands-on in developing professionals around the world, you'll learn how to:
  • Plan and execute a sustainable organization-wide engagement initiative
  • Turn employee engagement into a shared responsibility and daily priority
  • Take control of your own engagement so that you can inspire others
  • Open communication channels between managers and employees
  • Build a culture to fuel engagement, and then protect it fiercely
Turning the tide on employee engagement won't be easy. But if you're willing to commit, The Engagement Equation shows you the way.

"BlessingWhite's book on employee engagement provides practical guidance and tips for organizations to incorporate into their talent management strategies.

These all contribute to higher levels of business performance."
