Recorded on June 5, 2014

Presenter: Christa Degnan Manning, Senior Vice President, Global Workforce and Talent Strategies and Solutions, HfS Research

Much has been said about employee engagement – or the pervasive disengagement of the modern workforce – yet companies cannot control many of the factors that go into people’s propensity to be engaged, such as intrinsic motivation, individual job selection, and absolute opportunities available for advancement. 

What HR can do is reorient itself around enabling workforce productivity through establishing a culture and infrastructure of collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and constant career development that helps people adapt to the constant change and complexity of the modern workplace and stay focused on driving business results.
