Employee Engagement has been a focus of much attention over the last 10 years by both Employers and Academics, largely due to the promise it has offered of higher performing employees.

However, recent research has cast doubts that the level of engagement organisations have been seeking is in evidence in organisations in Europe and the USA.

This Dissertation explores the literature on Employee Engagement with a particular focus on the drivers / enablers of engagement, and on how organisations can implement practices that can deliver the positive benefits said to be associated with it.

The Dissertation also presents some examples of practices in Irish companies designed to increase engagement. This research was carried out through interviews directly with HR function contacts in the companies, kindly facilitated by HR Consultancy People Partners.

The research provided evidence of practices by companies in Ireland well aligned with good practice from the literature.
