The Business Reporter, part of the Sunday Telegraph in the UK, asked 7 experts what is next for employee engagement?
Here is my abbreviated interpretation, using mostly their words, of what they believe:
Tony Thomson: A move to management by mutual consent
Frazer Rendell: Employees as players not pawns
Mark Quirk: Engagement at the center and real time measures
Claire Sporton: Amplify the voice of employees
Mark Allison: Engagement as a DNA type driver of the organization
Gary Cattermole: Stop using the buzzword and make engagement inherent in what organizations do
Richard Lock: Get simple and move to engagement from people to engagement with people
I would agree with most of what was said. What do you think is next in the world of work for employee engagement?
I believe the future of engagement will be small, simple, significant, and sustainable as we engage every day with tactical and practical actions for the benefit of all: employees, organizations, customers, and other key stakeholders.
