Engagement is much more than just contributing through your regular work duties; it’s how involved you are with the “bigger picture.” Consider the following:
- Are you an individual who actively contributes to shaping the organization?
- Are you solicited for feedback on the direction of the organization?
Effective contribution is a partnership – good employers provide opportunities to get involved and good employees avail themselves of those opportunities. In return, employees get opportunities to cross train, take on stretch assignments, and explore other opportunities within the organization.
