Theme: Creating the Engaged Workplace
Designing an Engaging Workplace Fostering Commitment, Loyalty and Citizenship
Organizations seek engaged employees. Engagement is demonstrated through commitment to performing the work well rather than just â€˜good enoughâ€™; a citizenship attitude toward the company embracing its mission as their own; proactive work behaviors and initiative, that is in line with organizational goals rather than centered in their personal benefit are the goals of a good manager and staying with company. Employees seek a purposeful life, which is in part fulfilled by their job. This is aided by job and organizational â€˜fitâ€™. (Chapter 4)

Two Methods of Engagements:
1. By aligning the personal qualities and skills of the employee to the job, team and organization. This includes their individual characteristics (personality traits, ethical norms) and their psychological state (biologic conditions such as depression, PTSD; pre-existing commitment and citizenship levels; the role of attitudes and expectations of others in fulfilling their own needs).
2. By developing an organizational culture that enacts its espoused values, walks its talk, has leaders demonstrating its values and applauds employees who do the same.
