Engagement is not just for surveys
Friday, 20th May 2016
We believe passionately in the power of engagement, just like everyone reading this no doubt does. If we really want to change the perception that engagement is just for surveys, we need to be brave and ask more difficult questions, establish deep commitment to the cause across the board, and help people think differently about the role they play. Satisfying as landing a great engagement survey is, there is a far more engaging opportunity for all of us. Imagine what might happen to the engagement of the people in your organisation when you deliver that.

This trend of moving away from people and other leadership priorities is a costly mistake.
