About the Employee Engagement Initiative

Topics: Employee Engagement, Workforce

Survey-dependent approach making success difficult

Survey findings should play a part in driving employee engagement, but a survey is not a strategy. Efforts to enfranchise employees in performance improvement often fall short without attention to change readiness, HR capacity, and executive commitment. Frontline leaders, meanwhile, end up drowning in survey data and unable to focus.

What is the Employee Engagement Initiative?

EEI Dynamic CrosswalkHR executives challenged us to offer an alternative to their longstanding—and costly—arrangements for improving employee engagement. Rather than starting with the development of a survey, we started with what hospitals and health systems want to achieve.

Building on more than two decades of experience helping organizations effect change, the Employee Engagement Initiative enables hospitals and health systems to identify and prioritize their largest engagement opportunities and drive improvement through survey analytics and proven best practices.
