Human Resource Professionals are Often Sadly Unsophisticated

August 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

HR professionals know that their organizations are bad at employee engagement.  They know that EE is a critical condition for success as we continue to feel global competitive pressures.  In my experience (and opinion), most HR professionals continue to avoid a sophisticated discussion about the root causes of the lack of engagement.  They claim to know what managers should do to create employee engagement and they always list the same tasks, i.e. adopt an engagement as a strategy, align the values, listen to employees, measure performance, and hold employees accountable, yadda yadda yadda.   Most of these ideas just dance around the edges for improvement and fail address the real root causes.
