Employee Engagement: Is it the right measure?

Episode #199 // In the last 20 years, employee engagement has become the dominant method of understanding and measuring job satisfaction. There are a number of well-worn engagement surveys, which have global reach and lots of historical data that can be used for benchmarking and statistical analysis.

Some even reward their leaders based on improvements to this simple metric.
