Unlike now, a fair number of years ago the term “employee engagement” was relatively new. The question ” Are your employees engaged? ” brought forth a variety of answers. One manager told me ” Yes, but many of them are on contract and not directly engaged”. Another manager when asked in a fact finding conversation, ” Are you yourself engaged?” by one of our lady Consultants gave a somewhat sheepish smile and coyly said ” I am actually married with one child”.
