  • The above is but the tip of the iceberg! Although I agree that opening channels of communication is a start, engagement is an ethos!!

  • that would be good start but yes, only a tip of an iceberg, like Olivera said. In my experience, carefully thought out and targeted Employee Wellness Programs are thee way to go. They provide a common ground for both employees and employers to voice out and action issues of concern and importance to them that either make or break a conducive work environment. Such programs provide a good platform to carefully plan, implement, monitor and evaluate such issues, which at the end of the day will determine the satisfaction, productivity and general morale of the workforce.

  • Thanks so much for this article. Australia suffers a massive $32bn (that is 32,000 million!) annual loss in productivity through disengaged employees (Gallup)… some other country is picking that up.
    In discussions I have with prospective large company executives, there is a reluctance to truly seek the opinions and ideas of their staff. Exec teams are still trying to force-feed their staff with strategy to which they cannot relate. How can people be engaged with someone else’s plan? Contribution through crowdsourcing and then management teams SHARING (eeek!!) and communicating results is so effective. I love this space; when you find a CEO/MD with the courage to involve and listen their people who are executing on a daily basis, good things happen. They are so far, a rare breed.
