Many business leaders would argue that employee engagement has lost its momentum. In recent years, it's become more of a buzzword than a critical workplace issue.
2016 has come and gone, and we find the world of work looking much as it did one year ago: millennials in the workplace are growing in greater numbers and seniority; employee engagement and retention are the highest priorities; the war for talent is still raging as skill requirements are not being met by today’s workforce. In fact, 48% of employers are unable to fill their job vacancies, a serious problem that’s arising from a growing skills gap and inefficient recruiting processes. And once great talent is discovered, it can be a struggle to convince them to stay. It’s a vicious, competitive cycle that’s preventing many businesses from reaching their full potential.
