Is poor employee engagement management's fault?
|Publication Date||February 15, 2017|
This article focuses on the potential factors affecting employee engagement. The article suggests that it is common to blame managers for low levels of employee engagement but argues that often there are other causes. First, organizations should acknowledge their inefficiencies, not blame managers, and identify the root causes. Second, organizations should make sure to clearly communicate structures, values, and accountability. Third, the article recommends evaluating training program effectiveness, especially for managers. Many managers are previously well-performing front-line employees with technical skills, but they may not necessarily possess sufficient managerial skills prior to being promoted. Finally, managers should be empowered, as they are the agents that promote organizational culture.
