Abstract

US job satisfaction is at its lowest level in decades. Research indicates that Americans are staying in unsatisfying jobs because the market is much too poor to find alternative work. The economy will turn and the job market will become opportunistic in the months to come. Now more than ever it is imperative that organizations focus on employee engagement or they will lose talent and endure heavy retraining costs when the economy turns. This project will facilitate a leg up for my organization by outlining an employee engagement program based on the results of their 2010 Employee Engagement survey. Interventions will include: identifying champions, establishing small team meetings with senior leadership presence, creating an aligned team balanced scorecard, and implementing a training program on how to develop employees.
