High performing organizations understand workforce engagement differently than average organizations. An average organization assumes techniques like employee of the month recognition, or cute perks will capture the engagement of the workforce. Millennial’s see this for what it is, an attempt to buy loyalty at the cheapest possible price.
High performing organizations understand workforce engagement scores, not as a statement about the workforce, but a statement about the relationship between leaders and workers. The highest performing organizations put the responsibility of workforce engagement squarely upon the shoulders of leaders. Employee engagement is integrated within personal performance reviews.
