Employee engagement, to put it simply, is the level to which your employees embrace the organization’s goals as their own. It is a cultural issue, so it affects and is affected by everything leadership does. You have a pop machine at work? That’s great, but the short lived thrill of a fountain soda will eventually wear off. Pop machines are not a cultural solution, contrary to popular belief. Spending leadership time to focus on ways to recognize, empower and communicate with employees will result in positive morale, revenue and clients.
