I’m Simpson…Gregory F Simpson, Agent In Engagement.  Below is the latest intelligence briefing on employee engagement. Follow @agtinengagement to stay current with the latest updates.



“These assets have been declassified and should be distributed to fellow “Agents” for review.”




The Best Mentors Think Like Michelangelo

Harvard Business Review: “Michelangelo approached the craft of sculpting with the humble conviction that a unique and beautiful piece of art already existed within the stone, and his job was only to release it. We think the best mentors approach their art in the same way.”




The Frontline – Where Employee Engagement succeeds or fails (38:43)

Employee Engagement Alliance: “On Wednesday 24th January, we hosted a webinar with The Employee Engagement Awards and Tim Robson from NSU Media.” “Tim talked us through why NSU Media decided to focus their entire agency on frontline leadership engagement, with case studies from some of the UKs biggest brands such as Marks and Spencer and Liverpool Football Club.”



Why Diversity And Inclusion Matter, The Difference Between The Two And How You Can Start Building A Diverse And Inclusive Company Today (1:11:17)

The Future Organization: “Celeste Warren is the Vice President of Human Resources and Global Diversity and Inclusion, Center of Excellence at Merck.” “What is the difference between diversity and inclusion? Warren explains that diversity is simply our ‘differences’.” “Inclusion, on the other hand, is creating a culture that allows all people to ‘bring themselves into work’.”



The Mind of the Leader: How to Lead Yourself, Your People, and Your Organization for Extraordinary Results

Globoforce: “While the $46 billion spent on leadership training might improve leaders’ effectiveness – at least in a strictly business sense of focusing on the bottom line –something more is needed: Leadership that truly engages employees, leadership that is truly human and speaks to the basic human needs any employee has.”



This Week in Employee Engagement: January 26, 2018

Maritz Motivation Solutions: “The utter explosion of digital content presents countless opportunities for learning. Start here to narrow down your search each week in the often overwhelming landscape of employee engagement thought leadership!”



Understanding Why Employees Quit

Achievers: “Knowing what makes employees quit — and then heading off those problems — is the goal of every HR department. While you’ll never be able to avoid individual events that disrupt the lives of workers and their families, it’s helpful to have an overview of preventable causes for employee churn. People leave jobs for several classic reasons, according to Harvard Business Review, all of which are somewhat predictable. The key is to understand each reason well enough to defuse it with a proactive intervention. Here are the main reasons workers cite for leaving their positions, and how you can slow this expensive leakage and build your employee retention.”



TalentSumerization – The Employee Experience in Agile Enterprises

InfoQ: “The new objective is to create one employer brand which provides a seamless employee experience – from the first interaction with potential candidates to the way we stay connected with former employees. This includes the actual workspace, the way work is done, how we live up to our corporate values, and how we support people and ensure they can confidently fulfill their potential.”



Preventing employee turnover with Artificial Intelligence

ITProPortal: “Organisations can utilise AI to learn more about employee engagement and improve their employee journeys.”



Are you making major moments in your employee’s journey count? (1:00:31)

PeopleMatters: “People Matters and BI Worldwide talks about how it is important to understand every employee and reciprocate the available resources into value for the organization.”



Untapped Human Capital Is the Next Great Global Resource

Gallup: “In the 21st century, why do some organizations and economies thrive and grow while others struggle and often fail? Gallup’s new State of the Global Workplace report takes a big-picture approach to this question, examining the effectiveness with which governments and employers worldwide develop and deploy the most vital and sustainable resources available to them: the skills, talents and creativity of their people.”
