Employee engagement is a well-known buzzword that has many technical definitions, depending on the thought leadership niche you follow. However, no matter what your definition is, employee engagement is vital to organizations that want to continue to thrive. That’s what Kinetix, the RPO firm for growth companies, is outlining in their latest whitepaper, “It’s Not You, It’s Me: The Bootstrapper’s Guide to Employee Engagement.”
“Your view of employee engagement probably depends on who you’ve heard speak on the topic or what you’ve read. It’s okay to be cynical and jaded – that’s why we avoid deep science in this article, and lead with what we think everyone can relate to regarding employee engagement.” says Kris Dunn, author and Chief Human Resources Officer at Kinetix.
The article presents a simple, yet concise, definition of employee engagement and offers unique and accessible tools for readers to employ an engagement strategy in their organization. Kinetix also brings in an expert on the topic, Bob Kelleher from EmployeeEngagement.com, to shine light on the biggest myths surrounding the topic today.
“It’s not that they’re lazy, it’s that they just don’t care”, says Dunn quoting the movie Office Space , “You can spend a lot of money on engagement programs but if you don’t concentrate on the most important things, you will get zero improvement in employee engagement.”
