You know the statistics. Less than half of employees are engaged in their jobs. On average, businesses operate at 30 percent of effectiveness because of this engagement gap. 56 percent of HR professionals expect turnover to rise (86 percent of employees say the same â€” a telling gap). But here is what the statistics mean in real time: Right now, the high performer you are counting on to drive your organization's next innovation is probably reconnecting with a college pal looking for talent on LinkedIn.
What to do? The old top-down, HR-owned and driven approaches to engagement are not working in this climate and they probably won't ever work again. A note from the CEO to "pump up the troops," is likely to be met with a skeptical yawn, and the engagement survey you are counting on to show your engagement gaps will take too long to have effect. Generous pay increases and fast career tracks remain in short supply. Instead, the new (but common sense) secret to engaging employees in the Talent Economy is to empower them to engage themselves, customize all the conventional wisdom to fit your unique company, and leverage technology along the way.
The 2010 HCI Retention & Engagement Conference is designed to help companies see and execute this new way forward. It brings together not only leaders from HR, but line executives and high performing employees as well. And it features lessons learned from the best companies in the most challenged industries who have been forced to innovate in their approach to employee engagement â€” and succeeded.
