What is Employee Engagement?

Employee engagement is being committed to, dedicated to, and emotionally connected to your work and workplace so you give your best, discretionary effort. The difference between engaged employees and disengaged employees is the amount and quality of work that they do.
Engaged employees give their best; disengaged ones do not. If you're looking for a competitive advantage or to build a consistent workforce, engagement is critical. Which type of employee do you want on your team?

My Expertise With Engagement

When I became Chief People Officer for EnergyCAP, one of the first things I did was create an employee engagement program.

From reading the research and literature, I knew that when employees are engaged, it's good for everyone.

We trained managers and employees, measured engagement, and developed tactics to improve engagement. We then periodically measured engagement and adjusted our tactics. Over this time, we saw increases in engagement scores, low employee turnover, and double digit sales growth.

As a result of our success, other organizations invited us to teach them about engagement and I became a regular lecturer at the university level. Eventually the demand by outside organizations became too great, and I resigned from EnergyCAP to become a full-time coach and trainer.

Now my family lives in Charlottesville, VA, where I help organizations to build an engagement identity and start engagement practices.
