Employee Engagement: What Do We Really Know? What Do We Need to Know to Take Action?
Employee engagement is high on the agenda for many CAHRS sponsors whether they are based in
Europe, Asia or the U.S. Many companies are presently defining what employee engagement is and are
conducting surveys to measure the commitment of their employees to consistently act in the best interest of the organization.The CAHRS Paris conference will present rigorous faculty and sponsor company research to explore the real issues of employee engagement.In addition,there will be presentations and roundtable discussions to share best practices. We will all work together to learn about the integration of concepts of employee engagement into corporate strategy,how HR offers products and services to support the business delivery of the strategy,how employee engagement impacts business performance,and how it drives the outcomes of HR measurement and analysis.
The CAHRS graduate research assistants have worked over the course of the semester, with the generous support of CAHRS sponsor companies, to prepare this series of white papers examining the current issues affecting employee engagement and the practice of HR.The papers take account of a wide range of both academic- and practitioner-based literatures on the subject as well as emerging key trends.
