Employee engagement is a puzzle with many pieces to it. Most of us are still working on defining the term, learning what drives employee engagement (or disengagement), and planning out how programs that improve employee engagement can move the needle on key business outcomes.
Employee engagement is being challenged by the increasing diversity of today’s workforce. From aspiring Millennials to aging Baby Boomers — working in a complex mix of full-time, part-time, contingent, temporary, and contract roles — the 21st-century workforce is more diverse than ever, challenging organizations to build and support a corporate culture that fosters employee engagement and drives the employment brand.
It’s time to think more strategically about your entire workforce. Learn the benefits of a unified approach to HCM and workforce management.
In today’s competitive and rapidly changing business environment, sustained success requires a total HCM strategy that focuses on managing, engaging, and retaining your entire workforce — both hourly and salaried employees alike. It also requires a single, unified technology platform that enables managers to successfully execute on that holistic strategy for improved operational efficiency, higher employee engagement, and better business outcomes.
Read the e-book for best-practice advice and valuable insights into the shared future of HCM and workforce management, including:
Where early attempts to bring together HCM and workforce management fell short of expectations
Why you need an integrated HCM and workforce management technology platform to gain complete visibility into your entire workforce and drive better decisions

Engaging Employees through a Unified Platform
Learn how simplifying processes with a unified HCM solution can help you better manage all employees and remove barriers to optimal engagement.
An engaged workforce is satisfied and productive. To make this a reality for your organization, you need a human capital strategy that can help you think strategically about managing, engaging, and retaining your entire workforce.
However, in many cases, the systems that manage human capital alienate rather than engage both employees and managers — making it challenging, for example, to easily access schedules or paystubs without having to call HR or do self-service assessments of career path options.
Implementing an effective HCM strategy supported by the right workforce technology can save your organization time and resources, improve the management of your people-related processes, and drive greater employee engagement.
The workplace has dramatically changed over the past few years, with a growing number of organizations questioning the value of longstanding HR processes, including the annual performance review. Instead, they’re taking on a different approach: The next generation of performance management principles. It focuses on ongoing performance management, employee contribution and engagement.
In this eBook, you’ll learn how the future of performance management can help maximize your employees’ potential – while building your organization’s success. It will take a close look at:
• Signs of ineffective performance management
• Five essentials for driving the future of performance management
• Links between ongoing performance management and other talent management practices
• Steps to take before shifting to the next generation of performance management

Keeping them onboard
Most organizations today are focusing more attention and resources on employees—particularly on retention, engagement, and branding.

•Do you track employee retention/turnover?

Are you controlling wage and benefit costs or are they controlling you? Are you winning the battle for employee retention and engagement? There is a route to get you and your employees out from between the challenges of increasing financial burdens and improving employee wellness.
It’s hard to argue against the idea that employees need to actively participate in their organization’s safety culture. But how does an employer take it to the next level, turning a generally accepted idea into a closely held value or even a business-building tool?
While employee involvement is not a metric that can be easily quantified, it is essential to
establishing a company culture and work environment where safety counts above all else.
The more that employees participate in creating their own safe environment, the safer the
workplace is. There are a variety of benefits of this employee engagement.

How Middle Managers Are Leading The Push To Make Workplaces Better
According to a 2015 article in The Atlantic – “The Secret Suffering of the Middle Manager”– a study of 22,000 U.S. workers found that, as a class, middle managers suffered from the highest levels of depression of any group in the workforce.
A contributing factor to that depression: they don’t get to make big decisions.
Whether in pop culture, Dilbert cartoons, or business literature, the title “middle manager” is often derogatory, describing a job with frustratingly little power but plenty of responsibility. But this is an unfair characterization because managers outside the C suite are incredibly important to their organizations and have the power to inspire and uplift their employees.
To explore the depth of this phenomenon, we decided to look at a number of data points to see how prevalent middle managers are in leading employee engagement strategies. We used TINYpulse and our own clients as a barometer but also

Employee wellness efforts have historically been "one size fits all" -which is ineffective at improving employee health behavior. See how offering a personalized health experience for your employees based on robust data, reporting and segmentation can drive engagement and long-term healthy behavior change.
Launching an employee health and wellness program doesn’t guarantee positive results. You may face challenges, like lack of employee awareness and engagement. Discover techniques to engage your employees in your workforce health initiative.
Discover how you can leverage these five best practices of high-performing corporate wellness programs to make your wellness initiatives more successful in reaching the end game: healthier, happier, and more-productive employees.
When it comes to engaging employees in workplace wellness programs today, the operative phrase is quickly becoming, “Let the games begin!”
After suffering decreasing engagement and fewer savings than they initially expected from their wellness programs, employers are boosting participation by incorporating gamification—the emerging field of applying game mechanics and strategies to various types of applications and programs.
The end game, you might say, is lower healthcare costs, along with happier, more productive and engaged employees.
This paper draws on a wealth of experience, external research, and Virgin Pulse's robust analysis of client data to outline the key factors within your organization that can drive your employees to enroll in, and stay engaged with, your workplace wellness programs.
