Make It So That They Like Working There

Good thoughts on employee engagement. Remove roadblocks.

I started thinking about all the posts and studies talking about how to drive greater employee engagement and it struck me that we should worry less about engagement and worry more about “enablement.”…Too often I see people talking about engagement as if it is something you can create with gift cards and conversations. You can simulate it with those tools. But you can’t really create it without first giving the employees the ability to actually DO the work that makes them engaged.
