Employee Engagement

By the Numbers

Aug 1, 2011

Employees shouldn’t have to find ways to engage themselves in their work – that’s management’s job. At least, that’s the idea put forward by a new survey of human resource professionals. Edmonton-based Psychometrics Canada surveyed 368 HR managers across the country. Sixty-nine per cent of respondents said engagement was a problem in their organizations. “A paycheque is not enough,” says Mark Fitzsimmons, president of Psychometrics. “To keep staff engaged, organizations need to give them the opportunity to use their skills, to be creative and, most of all, to be listened to.”
