Hi Sean, thanks for the compliments on the article and your great addition to the 7 steps. You are right, it is best to stand back and specify the need and solution.

Hi Mary, thanks for your kind feedback. The data used here all comes from published sources including CIPD and Gallup. If you are looking for a good source of data on employee engagement check out Kevin Kruse - www.kevinkruse.com/employee-engagement-research-master-list-of-29-studies/

Employee engagement is a spiralling process, best approached from the bottom up. The key to achieving happier and healthier workplaces is to connect with all your employees and give them a say in how this should happen while also empowering them to take action on their own engagement.
Cultural change within an organisation is a difficult time for both management and employees as it is always a huge task. What we must remember is that organisational culture is made up of teams and each team has its own culture. Each team is made up of individual employees who can also contribute positively to the move towards a happier and healthier workplace if given the opportunity.
