Employee Engagement - The Dynamics and Variables

Rahul Manjare

Abstract


The concept of human capital is being recognised by employers all over the world. They are shifting their focus from processes to people to get ahead in the world of competition. Organizations have traditionally relied upon financial measures or hard numbers to evaluate their performance value and health. The so called “soft”, human oriented measures such as employee attitudes, traits and perception are now being recognized as important predictors of employee behavior and performance. Many researchers have linked employee engagement to business outcomes like productivity, quality improvement and retention of talent. A number of studies show that an important way to enhance employee performance is to focus on fostering employee engagement. The presence of high levels of employee engagement enhances job performance, task performance and organizational citizenship behavior, and productivity. This study intends to study the employee engagement in Indian Information Technology Sector and understand the practices adopted by few companies to engage their employees in order to retain talent.
