Employee Engagement – Who's Sinking Your Boat? 2021

Welcome aboard! At long last, the remake of our viral hit, ‘Who’s Sinking Your Boat?’.
When we launched our original in 2013, Gallup claimed that approximately 7 out of 10 employees are disengaged. In spite of billions being spent on engagement initiatives, we have only managed minor gains. As in the original, this remake will define engagement and make a business case for engagement BUT will also provide a ‘call to action’ by introducing 8 key focus areas organizations need to focus on to keep employees ‘afloat’.
