Product description

Review

"Bridger has made a powerful connection between the diverse knowledge of employee engagement and the actual practices that will make a difference. The book is loaded with ideas you can use. Read the book today and put employee engagement to work." (David Zinger, founder of the Employee Engagement Network)

"A compelling and thorough coverage of the evidence that supports the correlation between levels of employee engagement and overall business performance." (Tanith Dodge, HR Director, Marks & Spencer)

"Emma Bridger's book fits into a gap for students and professionals who are new to engagement and who have been looking for a text to make sense of it. It draws the reader through the main concepts, processes and discussions, providing many case examples." (David Saxon, Employee Engagement Lecturer, Middlesex University, London)

"This book takes you through the entire process, making it suitable for the relative HR beginner as well as the more experienced hand. The book's design and structure has managed to serve two masters eminently well, not being too simplistic or complex in the process. A fine balance has been maintained. It is quite amazing how so much material has been placed in such a relatively slim package, without it feeling overwhelming. If you are involved in HR you should give this book some serious consideration. It is quite likely that you will find a few things here to pique your interest, whether as a HR professional or just someone in a managerial position who has to manage people. There is quite a lot of takeaway knowledge within this book." (Darren Ingram, Darren Ingram Media)

"A practical approach to HR management systems and practices. HR professionals will find here a specific guide to understanding the process of employee engagement and building upon that process. It's the case studies which really drive this book, cementing theory and application and showing how different approaches work in real-world business situations." (Midwest Book Review, California Bookwatch, The Business Shelf)

By Autamme_dot_com TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 20 Dec. 2014
Format: Paperback
Keeping your employees happy, content, successful and engaged can be a problem. There is no simple solution. Neglecting them neither is an option, despite there being many people looking for work.

Even assuming you’ve got your company’s board and senior management on-side and agreeing that you need to nurture, maintain and care for the valuable asset known as the workforce, it is not a given that you will manage that task. This is even before you look at the differences between cultures and countries. This book, aimed at human resources (HR) staff might help, with it seeking to offer a complete, practical resource for understanding, measuring and building engagement through the use of positive psychology. Of course, there is no such single being as employee engagement either – it is a wide, complex, inter-linked list of things.

So a skilled HR professional is going to be a mix of a master chef, a plate spinner, a circus ringmaster, a priest and a motivator. Who will engage the engagers?

This book takes you through the entire process, making it suitable for the relative HR beginner as well as the more experienced hand. The book’s design and structure has managed to serve two masters eminently well, not being too “simplistic” or “complex” in the process. A fine balance has been maintained. It is quite amazing how so much material has been placed in such a relatively slim package, without it feeling overwhelming or being printed like a small hotel room Bible. A short review cannot do it true justice but needless to say if you are involved in HR you should give this book some serious consideration unless you are absolutely confident that you really do have your employee engagement sorted. Even then, are you being overly confident and complacent?

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought it for a PhD--Apply it Day-to-Day 6 Jan. 2015
By John Knotts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Employee Engagement is a great read...very easy to quickly digest. I picked up the book for some research I'm doing for a PhD, but the book provides a wealth of information. Emma provides background and information on the subject, great case studies to further understand how to improve your employee engagement, and helpful exercises that you might find from a consulting engagement. It is a great resource all around. Thanks Emma
4.0 out of 5 stars it was a really good source of ideas for me 1 Dec. 2016

I think this book was meant to be a college textbook. Regardless, it was a really good source of ideas for me, a small business owner.

A short review cannot do it true justice but needless to say if you are involved in HR you should give this book some serious consideration unless you are absolutely confident that you really do have your employee engagement sorted. Even then, are you being overly confident and complacent?

There is a good mix of content ranging from the “what is” employee engagement and does it matter through to the development, integration, monitoring and measuring of a programme. Should you still need more or just want to deep-dive on a point there is a very detailed bibliography too. The language used is quite accessible, free of jargon yet precise, so praise is due to the author and the editing team for making this book so universally suitable.

It is quite likely that you will find a few things here to pique your interest, whether as a HR professional or just someone in a managerial position who has to manage people. I believe there is quite a lot of takeaway knowledge within this book, just waiting on the reader.
