Employee Engagement and Leadership Development is
emerging as the greatest challenge facing leading organizations.
Talent Management after periods of financial crisis,
executives are currently focusing their attention on the financial
aspects of the organization rather than the workforce.
Similarly, managers and leaders are placing less
emphasis on employee engagement as soaring employment cost often lead to
the notion that employees are happy when well compensated, and that
engagement is unnecessary.
This state of mind is very dangerous for businesses as
that workers need to be engaged and feel valued the most. With economic
recovering and fewer layoffs, comes the erosion of employee loyalty and
trust, both of which leads to higher turnover and lower retention rate.
