ABSTRACT
The author comments on the finding of a survey that while managers affect the job satisfaction and commitment of employees, as much as 33 percent of them are not held responsible for employee engagement in their organizations. The online poll was conducted by Right Management, which is the talent and career management arm of Manpower. It is pointed out that this is difficult for companies to implement because measuring such a metric is quite complicated.
