Before you blame Zoom fatigue or those office desks gathering dust in your physical office for your team's woes, let's set the record straight. Gallup’s Senior Practice Expert Vibhas Ratanjee joins us to separate fact from fiction in the employee engagement and hybrid work universe.

First, stop blaming the pandemic and hybrid work. The die was cast long before you could even spell pandemic. He then opens the book on make-or-break conditions that link how your team feels to how your business performs. Yep, you heard it right—employee engagement ain't a 'nice-to-have'; it's a business imperative! 

Whether you're a tech-savvy geek, an experienced geezer, or simply someone curious about the future of work, this episode is for you. Get ready for enlightening insights, shocking statistics, and even a few laughs, as we reveal the keys to unlocking employee engagement in the hybrid era.
