In present times, when competition for top talent is fierce, and the cost of training new hires is steep, the HR team is concerned enough to build up a fully engaged workforce. Researchers have broadly described the concept of employee engagement & the need for it & even the implications. This study takes an initiative to understand the various kinds of employee engagement activities that are done in renowned companies especially catering to BFSI sector.
