Hi Shalini,

Employee engagement has today become one of those Buzzwords that is often quoted by the industry.

If you really sit down to think, you will find that all companies strive to do this but may have different names for it:

For instance, a company may have a hobby club being run in weekends, another might do team outings and excursions coupled with team building games, exercises, and maybe light hearted management lessons.

I have heard of another one that talks of paying fees for the employees Masters or other higher level education, some loan laptops on easy terms , with attrition clauses attached in various forms.

The point here is first, any organization will have to have a hard look at each one of the policies and rectify them to be non-threatening as far as possible for today's workforce. This is since, today; most of the youngsters do not even think twice to leave a job.

Once the policies are reviewed, then you will need to pick each one and communicate, communicate and over communicate it to the work force.

At the end of the day, the employee must feel from within that these are well meaning policies for the employee's benefit and his benefit is topmost on the management's agenda...

All the best in your search...

Employee Engagement is certainly different from Employee Satisfaction...
From my viewpoint in addition to all the above which Amy has stated, some very important things are -
1. Role Clarity
2. Goal/Objective/KRA Setting
3. Clear Career Paths / Job Rotations / Experential Learning
4. Knowledge Sharing and Management
5. Performance Management and NOT Appraisal System
6. Coaching and Mentoring for self dev
Are some more things to look into

Based on COPC, there are several aspects to coaching/ mentoring:

A team member willl be promotes ad a process trainer before being eligible for team leader.

team leader should make least 1 hour training module for his team every week.

updates to team should be delivered at fixed times not as per convenience.

trainers should spend time on the floor handling live transactions during lean periods.

new team members should spend time on a process in a controlled climate where quality is more important than productivity. for eg take a sales process, have a small batch running where new joinees hone their skills and ensure 100% compliance with what has been taught duing training stage rather than adopting shortcuts to productivity in a normal production environment.

Then they can be shifted to the same process in a regular production encironment.

The best mentoring processes are to be found in Australia, Indian cos have still not been able to implement their rigors in mentoring...

On the job training is a crucial component:

sitting side by side with a regular is not classified as OJT

a new joinee is not allowed to handle regular transactions as a part of training..

training should be as exhaustive as the ones implied for apprentices in germany of cab drivers in london. A trainee london cabbie has to spend spends 3 years on a bicycle riding each and every lane before being eligible as a full fledged cabbie.

there is too much, cant write endless pages so let me know if you need further help,

Thank You Surya for providing the methods with examples
But wherever I go for the interview and the employer when they ask about the Employee Engagement, they actually mean the amusement provided to the employees which keep them involved in different activities as generally happened in an IT firm or an BPO sector.
They generally ask about different methods , ways and approach one can adopt in the company inorder to keep employee engaged in some activities so that they can feel happy or can be retained.
please guide me

community building is definitely a facet of employee engagement.
But this is not by choice but mandatory.
for instance disaster management, will the management be able to prevent and fight fires without any help from workers-- NO
so there are plenty of avenues where employees from all deptts are involved-- waste minimisation, energy conservation, Good health doesnt depend on gym alone but timely medical checkups for the entire family of the employee and safe work places. eg conduct a program on hygiene for worker's wives.
eg How many IT companies ask their employees to go in for comprehensive medical checkups every 6 months-- until this happens how does one say for sure what are health hazards in office environment and whether the expensive furniture has been validated to be ergonomic.

Dear Surya
How one can know the different policies, employee engagement, amusement or different ways companies adopt inorder to keep their employees satisfied in India.
How one can do a comparative study of the HR policy/employee welfare/employee relation followed in India with other foreign companies.
Please assist me
