Links of the Week (Aug. 30 – Sept. 5)

Links of the Week is a selection of articles and blog posts about #EmployeeEngagement and #Millennials that were the most popular on my Twitter feed this week. I’ve added some personal thoughts and opinions to the links below as well. Enjoy!

The Comprehensive List Of Employee Engagement Activities (Business 2 Community)

While I’d say there’s nothing really new in this list, I do like the idea of “Learning Lunches” and more engaged training opportunities for team members. Showing that you care about the growth of your employees can really help a lot with fostering engagement.

How Technology is Shaping Millennials’ Investing Habits (Nasdaq)

It was surprising to learn that estimates suggest “only 26% of Americans under 30 are investing in stocks.” That said, millennials are making a smart move by investing in ETFs and low-cost index funds more so than their parents.

Employee Feedback Is The Killer App: A New Market Emerges (Forbes)

A must read. A great, in-depth article about the changing landscape of employee feedback. Annual employee engagement surveys are just not enough anymore to understand how your employees are feeling. The author cites some really interesting companies like Waggl.it that are changing the world of employee feedback.

The Big Mistake Most Organizations Make with Employee Engagement (Colin Shaw)

Discusses some really interesting findings from a Foresee study on customer satisfaction and employee engagement. When you have more engaged employees, your customer retention and profitability increase.

That’s the round up for this week! Come back for more next week.
