Abstract

Issues of employee engagement have traditionally landed at the door of HR, tasked with undertaking annual employee engagement surveys and responding with initiatives devolved to line managers. However, recent research conducted on behalf of Engage for Success has highlighted that engagement is everyone's responsibility. Improving levels of engagement requires a series of roles fulfilled by all stakeholders in the organisation: from senior management to front-line staff. Employee engagement is a two-way process and is not something that HR, or line managers, can change in isolation. To coin a well-known phrase, when it comes to employee engagement, it is 'all for one and one for all'.
