Celebrate the 25th Birthday of Employee Engagement
DECEMBER 1, 2015
An idea as powerful as employee engagement seems like it should have been around forever. But managers haven’t always talked about the need to engage employees the way they’re talking about it today. Actually, employee engagement is a fairly young idea. In December 1990, Boston University professor William Kahn published the first-ever mention of “engagement” as we know it today. In need of engagement. Engagement theory changed that.
