White Paper: Rethinking Employee Engagement

Employee engagement has traditionally been operationalized as annual employee surveys with rigid follow-up cycles that both managers and employees find frustrating and see very little value in. The Internet of People, emanating from the importance of soft data, will change this. Engagement is transforming into an integrated measure of how businesses operate, offering human resource leaders a refreshingly new opportunity to secure the delivery of critical outcomes in close collaboration with business leaders.

Based on recent research, theory, and proven use cases, this white paper will elaborate on and discuss how these five trends will help prevent business failures and accelerate strategy execution in the Internet of People. But more monumentally, it will show how human resource departments can own this rethinking of employee engagement and use it to fundamentally transform their role from being a cost center into a strategic business partner. One that is critical to achieving short-term goals and objectives and securing long-term sustainability, competitive advantage, and survival.
