I found another TED Talk that was very interesting for human resource professionals and recruiters. This also covers some aspects of employee engagement.
“Infusing more humanity back into the work place for those human beings who happen to be employees.”
She suggests we need to treat employees humanly – which means to address very human needs…such as the the need to be appreciated, the need to belong, and the need to feel like you are making a meaningful contribution.
“When human beings are treated in a way that they are capable of more, they rise to the occasion.” Believe in your employees.
