Our addiction to reading every whitepaper we can get our grubby little hands onto means that we are able to share our favorite ones with you. So far this year, we’ve seen many insightful studies on talent management, employee engagement, and social business from big companies such as Blessing White, Gallup, and Towers Watson. We’ve loved all of them. But you might be surprised to learn that some of our favorite whitepapers are also from some lesser known companies, and we’re glad to highlight them here as well. Enjoy.
TalentKeepers just released its 2013 Talent Engagement and Retention Trends Survey Report which is now the largest and longest running study of its kind. This year’s research signals another shift in nearly every aspect of how organizations manage human resources is underway, and finally this time the shift is signaling a brighter outlook. This optimism shows up in a wide range of measures as organizations gain confidence and take a longer view in planning their talent strategies.

I’m not going deny it… I’m quite fond of the folks at Awareness Inc. Not just because they afforded me the awesome opportunity of personally visiting and meeting the folks running the Super Bowl Social Media Command Center, but because they also put together some phenomenal reports (see the State of Social Media Marketing).
In their most recent whitepaper, they explore something nearer and dearer to my own passion: engagement.
