Joyce Maroney, director of The Workforce Institute at Kronos Incorporated, welcomes consultant, speaker, writer, and former CEO of the Great Place to Work® Institute China Gorman on The Workforce Institute Radio podcast series to discuss the state of employee engagement today and why the human element might be the missing piece. Despite the best efforts of most organizations, employee engagement has remained flat each year – or in some years declined – over the past several decades. Gorman and Maroney discuss this phenomenon by addressing:

  • Why it is so hard to move the engagement needle in today’s workplace;
  • What organizations “get wrong” when it comes to employee engagement compared with examples of those who do it right;
  • Stories of companies that have dramatically turned around employee engagement and drove a significant culture shift across their organization;
  • The often understated importance of being human at work, especially when it comes to leadership; and
  • Three steps leaders can implement today that will have a meaningful impact on employee engagement at their organization.
