Interesting to read that - yet again - employee engagement is top of HRD's headache list. The world is becoming ever more transparent and there is growing distrust of institutions, organisations and business leaders. 

As a result, brand reputation is increasingly shaped by individuals and their personal experiences of organisations. 

And whilst there’s increasing evidence that supports the business case for encouraging employee advocacy only 17% of employers currently have a comprehensive employee advocacy programme. Surely time to move beyond lip service and develop more robust plans?
