Employee engagement is the strategy of winning staff’s hand, head, heart, and ‎soul to instill an ‎innate desire and passion for excellence. Engaged workers want ‎their company to thrive because ‎they feel linked to its goal, vision, and mission ‎physically, socially, emotionally, and even ‎spiritually. Companies are bleeding and ‎facing financial constraints with the economic downturn ‎resulting in decreased ‎wages, lay off, retrenchment, pink slip, voluntary resignation, golden hand ‎shake, ‎closure. As they have bonds with the company, engaged workers face more heat, ‎their ‎morale is low, placing a question mark on the relevance of employee ‎engagement. Both employee ‎and employer are in catch 22 situations. ‎
