The Handbook of Employee Engagement: Models, Measures and Practice
Edward-Elgar Publishing House
Editor: Simon Albrecht
The Handbook of Employee Engagement is designed to offer evidence-based perspectives on the definition, drivers, outcomes and utility of this increasingly influential construct. Despite widespread claims in support of the impact that engagement can have on individual, team and organizational outcomes, there is no single resource available to help researchers and practitioners wanting to understand and critically evaluate the ‘state of play’ of employee engagement. Furthermore, there is no single resource which describes tested and practical steps which can be used by consultants and HR managers to improve engagement in differing organizational contexts. The handbook has the ambitious goal of covering a broad range of topics relevant to both the science and the practice of employee engagement. The book is intended as a comprehensive collection of conceptual pieces, research studies and case studies aimed at summarizing the ‘state of play’ of employee engagement from across the globe.
