Abstract

An examination of emerging employee engagement theory within the context of Higher Education (HE), to understand how the specific traits of the sector reinforce or negate current theoretical models and ideas. The technological facilitation and social acceptance of fast, multi-way, meaningful dialogue through a range of channels has created an expectation that organisations will engage in similar practices. Within this context the research considers the extent to which universities apply four key principles identified in recent academic and corporate literature on the topic of employee engagement: a) Strong strategic narrative; b) Engaging managers; c) Valued employee voice; d) Organisational integrity.
