CMSWire's March Tweet Jam: Inspiring Employee Engagement #SocBizChat


There are definitely some burning questions surrounding employee engagement. From what it is and how to define it, to the tools and processes used to drive it — employee engagement is certainly a hot topic. What role does leadership play? Where do tools fit in?

Join us on Wednesday, March 27th at 10 am PDT / 1 pm EDT / 1700 GMT as we discuss these and other questions during our monthly Tweet Jam.

We welcome the broader CMSWire community to participate. All experience levels are welcome to connect with the expert panel we're assembling. The easiest way to join the conversation is by following or including the #SocBizChat hashtag.

The Questions

  1. How you do define employee engagement and what are three behaviors of an engaged employee?
  2. Why is employee engagement a critical leadership challenge today?
  3. How does one make the connection between engagement and organizational performance? In other words, what is the ROI?
  4. Can tools play a critical role in engagement? If so, how?
  5. Is there a right way and a wrong way to deploy gamification in the workplace?
  6. Name three ways you quantify employee engagement.
  7. What are the three biggest challenges to creating engaged employees?
