‘Employee engagement issue’

Recently, employee engagement has become a byword for everything considered high performing about the human workforce. These days, it is received knowledge that engaged employees are productive, more likely to be innovative and high-performing and less of a flight risk.

Of course, this utopian endpoint – whereby employees are engaged and working productively – is just what business leaders want; but this demand heaps more pressure on HR. They must ideate, implement and iterate schemes that get individuals more engrossed and active in the work they are undertaking. Yet, this is not all. Often, they must overcome blockers to this process, hit back against traditional understanding of HR’s remit and, sometimes, reposition the function entirely.

This is why this issue looks at employee engagement in its entirety. There are tips on how to re-engage staff after the Christmas vacation, at what can be a difficult time of the year for all. Another feature explores the pros and cons of employee engagement surveys whilst HR Grapevine also explores how to make work, well, work for parent workers. Additionally, this edition’s cover feature looks in-depth at how one firm is driving engagement by letting workers make top tier business decisions.

I wish a successful 2020 to all of you. As ever, enjoy.
