Signs your employee engagement program isn't working
If your employees don't spend time together outside work or look for personal development opportunities, your prospects for real employee engagement look grim.
Do the employees at your organization hang out together outside of the office?
Do they refer friends to your business or work past normal business hours to go above and beyond?
If so, congratulations! You have engaged employees. If not, your employees are simply collecting a paycheck.
