If you found that the first two building blocks in employee engagement sound like they can help you learn how to make your business grow, you’ll want to learn more about our next two: making all necessary resources available to employees and shaping the demands managers place on workers.

This may come from politics inside the store or company, work overload or concern about job security. This segment shows some of the things that you and your managers can do to create a stronger culture of employee engagement and grow your business in the process.
