The HR world is overwhelmed with the idea of “engagement.” Every new initiative has to drive employee engagement and every new vendor is promising new ways to accomplish engaging human resources. In retail, the pursuit of retail associate engagement is just as frantic.

Employees who are disinterested or unengaged at work are less productive, more likely to quit, and create poorer customer service experiences.

Doing employee engagement only works if it is actually engaging and provides values to your employees.
