Abstract

The aim of this article is to provide an answer to a question – is it possible to have great business results and flourishing workforce at the same time? Many organizations are facing the dilemma of satisfying different stakeholders demands – shareholders expect increasing profits, society wants responsible business. These seem to be opposite goals, but as they say – opposites attract – especially when it comes to employee engagement. Employee engagement is a state that has numerous beneficial outcomes for both the workforce and the employer. Engaged employees are passionate about their jobs, are fulfilling their potential and have enhanced well-being (satisfaction with life, health), feelings of purpose and meaning (Salanova et al 2010, Schaufeli et al 2008). Greater performance is possible without exploting the workforce. Review of engagement theory and practice in this presentation will let us see that the transfer from “scientific management” to Positive Organizational Scholarship is possible.
