Just Enough Engagement isn’t Enough

I recently attended the inaugural Enterprise Engagement Alliance Networking Expo that focused on engaging employees, customers, vendors, suppliers, and channel partners; i.e., everyone who impacts the enterprise.

As with all great conferences, learning took place both in formal sessions and informal networking. It was during a casual conversation about the current state of engagement, that Paul Kiewiet (one of the conference speakers) shared this with me:

“People work just hard enough to not get fired, and companies pay employees just enough that they don’t quit.”


Not exactly a formula for success these days.

Note: I’ll share more about enterprise engagement in my next post.
