Dear Mr. Chandusekar,You can do the following activities in your organisation for retaining the employees:1) have a opening working day (wherein an employee can get his/her relatives, finacee, wife/husband, children, etc.) and also work on that day.....2) arrange picnics for the staff (say once in 3 months)........Also am attaching a powerpoint presentation on "Employee Engagement"RegardsAnkit09869851356

TEI (Total Employee Involvement) Activities is one of the effective tools of Employee Engagement. It promotes the involvement of Employees, empower them, which results in hight morale.
Quality Control Circle (QCC)
Supervisory Improvement Team (SIT)
Cross Functional Team (CFT)
Task Force
Suggestion Scheme
are some of the TEI activities. You can visit the companies which follow TQM methodology and witness the results of these TEI activities.

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
29th May 2008 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.

Organizations are increasingly offering some form of personal financial education as part of their employee benefits programs. They recognize that this service increases workplace productivity and morale, while reducing stress levels. Other benefits to offering some form of workplace financial education include:
1. Helping employees improve their personal financial wellness.
2. Assisting employees with workplace stress associated with financial problems.
3. Helping employees navigate major financial milestones, including: Managing Credit & Debt, Insurance Needs, Investing Basics, Tax Planning and others.
Please refer to the attachment if you are interested in providing personal finance eduction to you employees, under employee benefits.

You can engage your employees in the workplace by these easy to implement ways:
-Giving them flexibilities to their work schedules so they feel connected to the organizations
-Provide them opportunities to volunteer any social cause.
-Always ask for feedback about anything in the company so they feel confident.
-Conduct regular social meetings to just listen to them about their views
-Show your appreciation regularly for deserving employees
Promote strong bonding of the team members.
