Improve Employee Engagement by Following These Trends
Duncan Kingori
Whether you followed the career path your childhood memory was fascinated by, or you delved into something else, one important thing stands out: how engaged are you at work? (Same question can be asked reflectively if you have employees- how engaged are they?) Sadly, one in three U.S employees scoffs at the concept of employee engagement because it is so far from their reality. While some totally cannot connect with the company’s mission, and others feel like fishes out of water because they’d rather be elsewhere. Employees are less productive because they lack the motivation to be at work, leaving their minds unengaged!

Ankita Poddar
Organizations know the best ideas come from employees across levels and organizational hierarchies. The story behind the creation of scotch tape and post-it notes have been passed down from one generation to another as compelling reasons to invest in surfacing and building ideas.
