What is employee engagement anyway?

Similar to “strategy” and “synergy”, the word “employee engagement” has become a term that is overused by company management, software vendors, and consultants alike. Because of this, it has lost its meaning and left executives knowing that, while they are unsure what it is, that it is important and in need of improving.
