Employee engagement is a popular topic. Not surprising, given its connections to positive organisational outcomes. Although we know that engagement is important, organisations are uncertain over how to do engagement. The MacLeod Review (2009) highlighted low levels of employee engagement in the UK and led to the development of the Engage for Success movement. The movement aims to grow awareness of employee engagement through Thought and Action Groups (TAGs) and regional networks.

In response to growing interest in the region, and with support from Nottingham Business School, Engage for Success established the East Midlands Employee Engagement Group. The group had a very successful launch on the 27th November at the Nottingham Conference Centre. The day was opened by Dean Professor Baback Yazdani, with keynote presentations from David MacLeod (co-founder of Engage for Success), Faran Johnson (Managing Director of Engage for Success), and Rory Campbell (John Lewis Management Board).  The remainder of the day involved quick-fire employee engagement case studies, wicked thinking, and interactive polling.

The group will run a series of interactive events across the year. If you would like to know more about the group, please email Dr Sarah Pass (Regional Group Lead and Senior Lecturer at Nottingham Business School) at sarah.pass@ntu.ac.uk.
