Workers and managers alike have much at stake when it comes to employee engagement. Managers and business leaders will be especially interested to learn about the links between employee engagement and performance that appear again and again in our report.

These are just a handful of the questions the companies highlighted in our report asked when developing their own strategies: How can we ensure that employees feel valued and stable in their jobs?
What can we do to better tap the strengths and ideas of our employees and invite them to shape decisions?
Could we create a more diverse workplace and engage with our communities as a whole by recruiting new types of employees — especially those chronically underemployed or overlooked by traditional hiring practices?
