Top 10 employee engagement thought leaders on the biggest trends of 2021

The top 10 employee engagement thought leaders -‍

E — Employee feedback : Saahil Mehta

“It is important to not live life as if your glass is half full and you know everything that is needed. Instead, you should always be like a sponge where you absorb everything that life throws at you. It is then that you start seeing positive results and learn to improve yourself in the process.”

N — Non-judgemental attitude : Shona Elliott

“The more that leaders and employees develop the skill of being self-aware and non-judgemental, the more they will be in a better position to interact harmoniously with one another at the workplace.”

G — Goal alignment : Jill Christensen

“It is important for organizations and leaders to make employees feel connected to something bigger than themselves, like the organization’s goal and to inspire them in the process.”‍‍

A — Age of technology : Rahul Sethi

“Limitless opportunities are possible at work with a focus on employee well-being by making people more technologically capable and advanced. At the same time, emotional strength i.e. the core trait of what makes us human needs to be cultivated. This would bring about a sufficient blend of both man and machine.”

G — Growth : Steve Cadigan

“HR is ever-evolving. Whatever skills we are learning today, we know that they need to be different in the next five years. So in a world that’s constantly changing and adapting, it is not important to recruit talent based on what they know. Instead, it is important to recruit them based on what they ‘can’ know and what they ‘can’ learn with efficient engagement with others in the years to come.”

E — Empathy : Jason Lauritsen

“What is the need of the hour is how you are caring for your employees and empathizing with their concerns and issues, especially at a time when a crisis has struck and when not many have assumed the care-giving role of a leader before.”

M — Making a conversation : Ramesh Srinivasan

“Not a lot of managers are happy or comfortable or trained to have conversations with their employees on what they expect from the organization and whether the goals of the two align. There needs to be training for managers to have a heart to heart ‘purpose chat’ with their team in order to ensure better engagement.”

E — Execution : Mary Faulkner

“Irrespective of whether you’re a top-down organization or a bottom-up one, the factor that stays constant is that businesses work and engage with people for setting, executing and achieving company goals. For this reason, leaders need to narrow their attention to ensure that employees are engaged and motivated enough to function optimally.”

N — Need for intentional diversity : Harsh Kumar Johari

“Employee engagement is all about having a culture that embraces differences in opinions of employees and encouraging active interaction and participation from each one on the subject.”

T — Transformational engagement : Lopamudra Priyadarshini‍

“We cannot deliver old wine in a new bottle when it comes to employee involvement. It is extremely crucial to present it through a different and creative lens.”
