Major Research Reports

High-Performance Employee Engagement: Framing a Systematic Approach

Employee engagement fuels organizational growth. The correlation is hard to deny. To help organizations optimize employee engagement and its benefits, Brandon Hall Group’s Madeline Laurano developed this high-performance employee engagement framework and white paper. This report explores how best-practice organizations are building results-driven programs, aligning objectives with business objectives, and understanding the role of engagement in broader talent management strategies.

This KnowledgeGraphic illustrates the problems organizations face in hiring talent — to some degree because of a perceived talent shortage, but also because — despite the best of intentions — they are not making changes and innovations to turn the tide.
