Employee Engagement is the New Black, or Orange

I was in a meeting last week when one manager turned to another and asked, “What’s that buzzword everyone’s using these days?”

It turns out the buzzword wasn’t engagement, but it might as well have been. In our work, you can’t turn a corner without stumbling into the phrase “employee engagement” or “organizational engagement”. By which we really mean “strong culture” and “employees who act like they care”.

This graphic from the folks at Good.co – and the supporting findings below it – offers plenty of perspective on why everything is coming up engaged these days.
