Organizations that want to increase employee engagement need a performance management system that is geared toward developing it. Giving people more opportunities to learn can play a part, but companies must manage all the dimensions that drive engagement, not focus on just one.
The world’s best companies recognize that employees flourish when they are placed in roles that play to their talents. Thus, organizations should not try to “bestow talents” on their employees; instead, they should work to maximize the greatest talents within those individuals. To become world-class, companies must first focus on selecting the right employees into each role — then on helping them develop into excellent performers in those roles.
