    Engage: (verb) To involve oneself or become occupied; participate

    In a nutshell, to engage an employee is to encourage an employee to actively participate in all levels of business operations, to foster an atmosphere that allows this participation, and to provide the tools necessary for the employee to adequately participate. The result is an employee is personally dedicated to the company's success.

    The perfect real life example is Sam Walton. He was well-known for making personal visits to his stores. He would chat with the employees and encourage their suggestions for improvement. Imagine a stocker making minimum wage sitting at the table with the president of a multi-billion dollar empire being asked for his opinions on how the store was running.

    Practical examples would be weekly small group meetings to solicit opinions or allowing casual Friday's where employees are allowed to wear jeans to work. Departmental picnics or monthly birthday parties tend to foster a family atmosphere that engages many employees. Basically, anything that makes work more fun, exciting, challenging, or involved can be classified as engaging employees.

    The term Employee Engagement refers to the dynamic of a mutually-rewarding relationship between an Employee and their Employer's business. An Employee who is engaged is connected in an emotionally healthy way, and is emotionally invested in the business' success. This type of relationship is mutually-rewarding because the employee is happier, can produce better results, and is more able to experience personal growth that aligns with the business. Over time engaged relationships become more and more meaningful, and beneficial, for employees and business alike.

    That term where I work means an employee who automatically goes out of their way to help and greet customers and also an employee that has knowledge and expertise in the job they do and also do it well.

    I would think it means the process of hiring employees.
