Although researchers have made great strides in clarifying the meaning of employee engagement, scholars are ambivalent as to whether employee engagement is distinct from other constructs related to the employee-organization relationship, and it is argued that there is a need for further scholarly examination and exploration, particularly within the context of  the rapidly changing work environment where twenty-first-century technology and behaviour meet twentieth-century organization, demanding innovative responses to the challenges of employee engagement.Addressing this issue, this book reviews, analyses and presents evidence from academic researchers and supplements this with practice-based case studies from a range of international organizations. The author seeks to provide a coherent, consistent definition of employee engagement; clarity about  its benefits; identification of its key features and attributes, and an understanding of how these are translated into practice; and insight into the most effective ways of measuring employee engagement in a meaningful way.
