Dinesh DivekarDear Ashok,
Engagement is characterised by employees being committed to the organisation, believing in what it stands for and being prepared to go above and beyond what is expected of them to deliver outstanding service to the customer. Employee engagement is more psychological contract than a physical one. It is something the employee has to offer. Engaged employees feel inspired by their work, they are customer focused in their approach, they care about future of their company and build positive relationship with their superiors, peers and juniors.
I do not know under what assumption you have written this post however, if you have written this post assuming that some games may help in building employee engagement then let me specify that it will help developing only a physical engagement and not mental one. Going further, your managers have big role to play in building employee engagement. If managers do not inspire their subordinates or far from motivation, if managers disappoint their subordinates then in this shadow of disappointment, can some games build mental affiliation?
Against this backdrop, what you need to do is to prepare comprehensive Employee Engagement Plan (EEP) that lasts for 1-2 years. At the end of the plan, you should be able to measure increase in engagement index. For further discussion, feel free to contact me.

Dinesh DivekarDear Manasa,
It is difficult to write anything about "Employee Engagement Plan" (EEP). Execution of EEP starts with obtaining buy-in from the management. Secondly, it involves survey questionnaire. You need to have action plan to work on the outcome of the questionnaire.
Have you done Employee Satisfaction Survey (ESS). Employee engagement (EE) is far more than just employee satisfaction. This is because satisfied employees may not be engaged. However, to begin with at least conduct ESS. This is a matter of consulting. If you wish to hire my services on ESS, you may do so.

My advice is that before designing the employment engagement activity, you need to plan followings for the successful execution :
a) Budget cost for EE activity
b) No. of particpants you wish to involve or anticipated to be get involved
c) Duration of the event
d) Venue or availability of the space to coduct EE activity
In larger perspective, above four are the basic parameters to design the EE event plan. However, followings are the few suggestions, for Xmas event
1) make team to decorate Xmas tree . Its a good team building exercise
2) put a quiz on Xmas and distribute goodie bags to the winners . This is spontaneous and on the spot event
3) declare dress down day and put completion among employees. Announce Mr. & Ms. tile of your company who meets the parameter of your competition
