Employee Engagement Surveys: Driver or a Waste of Time?

Every important global survey points to employee engagement as a primary concern for organizations. It is not uncommon for CEOs and business leaders to call it out as one of the major factors keeping them from achieving their business results. Judging by the number of new vendors entering this space, companies are willing to spend money for the problem to go away. With the widespread availability of technology to collect engagement data, there’s ample information available on employee engagement levels. Despite the escalating investments and concerted effort, recent studies show employee engagement levels continue to decline.
