Employee engagement is a concept that is generally viewed as managing discretionary effort; that is, when faced with choices, an engaged employee will act in a way that furthers the organization's interests. Attractive in theory, employee engagement programs—from ad hoc to elaborate—have emerged in organizations of all sizes and descriptions. But how do you accurately measure the impact of these programs? Does heightened employee engagement directly affect business outcomes?

Please join members and guests at the upcoming meeting of Best Practices, LLC’s Global Benchmarking Council (GBC), “Human Capital Management: Facing the Challenges of the 21st Century Workforce,” from May 30 - June 1, 2007 in Key Biscayne, Fla., to hear from a world-class slate of companies how they are dealing with employee engagement as well as recruitment, retention and redeployment at a time when these activities are taking on a more global and transformative power.
