There seems to be a lot of focus lately on "employee engagement" and how it is an important retention tool. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make sure that employees are engaged in their jobs?

Hi Lajpat,

It's a well known fact that praise and recognition when done properly will increase your employee engagement, reduce employee turnover and a whole lot of other benefits come from showing your employees that you appreciate them. Gallup polls and other polls have shown, one of the top reasons employees leave is they don't feel appreciated!

 You can conduct employee engagement survey among your staff, sample quit ions are available on internet or you can design your on questioner.

A nice article on Employee Engagement  Can Technology Improve Employee Engagement?

Read it at

It talks about a well established co-relation between employee engagement and business results and how employee engagement can be improved.

If you want your employee to be “engaged” in the business, make them your “internal partners”.  Show each segment of the organization how their efforts are either positive contributions to the ongoing success of the company, or, on the other hand, how their ambivalence is  a slow infection which if left untended could become a major malady leading to the demise of the Company.

If necessary, use a wheel, as an example.

The spokes are representative of each department.  Working together, they make the wheel stable, one broken spoke may not have much of a consequence in the near term, but puts additional, unwanted stress on the others.  In time, all the spokes will fail, causing the wheel to cease to function
