Title:
Research into the application of employee engagement
Authors:
Bell, John William Hans
Abstract:
Literature on employee engagement was reviewed to establish the state of knowledge and was found to be inconclusive. Multiple authors consider employee engagement to be a combination of prior constructs, and therefore not providing anything additive, whilst others consider it to be distinct in its own right. Furthermore, the specific definition by those authors that do claim it to be distinct is not consistent. A range of employee focus groups were conducted to establish an employee-led definition of employee engagement and its drivers. This was then followed by a range of employee attitude surveys. This multi-year research was conducted in a global mining organisation in multiple geographic locations.
