Supervisory Improvement Team (SIT)
Cross Functional Team (CFT)
Task Force

Dear Chandrasekar,
In addition to great ideas from others that may or may not work, I suggest you start looking for ideas from within your own organisation. Ideas are only as good as they get encouraged, supported and implemented. Very often, its either the fault of the culture created by employees and/or leadership that stands in the way of employees becoming engaged in their job. One of the bigger reasons why people don't seem to get engaged is that they feel they are in a state of helplessness or they feel having fun at work is a sin!.
My advice is, if you want people to be engaged, then simply ask them what would it take?. Often, we get carried away with "managament knows best", to the extend of ignoring employees needs and wants!. Introduce an Employee Suggestion Scheme and you will be surprised how much employees know and can contribute to becoming engagement. Employees have all the reason to support ideas that come from them!

Thank you for all your comments.

Employee engangement has become a major issue nowadays and innovative steps have to be adopted to do the same.

Employee benefits also known as fringe benefits, perquisites, or perks are various non-wage compensations provided to them addition to their normal wages and salaries.
Fringe benefits can include, but are not limited to: (employer-provided or employer-paid) housing, group insurance (health, dental, life etc.), disability income protection, retirement benefits, daycare, tution reimbursement, Sick Leave, Vacation (paid and non-paid), social security, profit sharing, funding of education, and other specialized benefits.
Often, perks are given to employees who are doing notably well and/or have seniority. Common perks are company cars, hotel stays, free refreshments, leisure activities on work time (golf etc.), Allowances for lunch, family dinner etc...
Common Employee Benefits
Paid Vacations
Employee Health Insurance Plan
Paid Sick Leave
Disability Insurance
Education Reimbursement
Pension Plan
Life Insurance
Offering employee benefits provides many paybacks to your business. Number one is staff retention. An attractive employee benefit package will help recruit good employees and retain them as well. In addition, staff retention helps reduced turnover.

One thing I would like to add. Though there are tendencies of blind optimism becasue of so called positive thinking, the fact is that some people are simply not cut out for certain occupations- About Make your passion your profession Make your passion your profession(Work prisoners and students)
For instance, Amitabh Bachchan conceded once upon a time that he was not a business executive and engaged himself elsewhere and the result is there for all to see. They may not all be successful stories but considering the number and kind of lateral transitions in the western world, one really wonders where we stand.

can somebody tell me gow to plan employee engagement activities... what would be the flow of conducting engagement activities
From India
A number of companies have done research on what engages employees. They include:

Towers Perrin
Corporate Leadership Council

The results are generic and include things like:

-letting employees see how their job fits into the big picture
-providing regular, timely and tactful feedback
-execs and managers doing what they say they will do
-providing regular information about the company
-allowing employees to have a say in how their jobs are done
-providing interesting work
-allowing for social interaction
-setting mutually agreed challenging goals

To get a good picture of what engages employees in your own organization, I suggest you conduct an employee engagement survey or run some focus group sessions – and then act on the results.
