Let’s face it. The future of work looks different than it did a year ago. Way different. Which means that the employee engagement framework you were using then is a relic of the past.
It’s time to get caught up.
Gone are the days of the historic war for talent and foosball tables in the break room. Now, the top challenges facing HR leaders include:
- Creating culture without proximity
- Keeping teams aligned and productive, no matter where they work
- Ensuring managers have the skills to lead teams through change
- Retaining top talent in an uncertain market
We’ve been there. We are there.
Here’s how we’re doing it.
Today’s biggest challenges — and how to handle them.

Meet the Engagement Flywheel
AKA, our framework for creating employee engagement, wherever your people are working.
Why a wheel? Because each element connects to and propels the others. Goals & OKRs, feedback, conversations, recognition, and incentives support each other — and your employees.
- Goals & OKRs: Drive alignment and productivity
- Feedback: Drives growth and performance
- Conversations: Drive connection, alignment, and growth
- Recognition: Drives engagement and appreciation
- Incentives: Drive the behavior that supports all of the above

The Engagement Flywheel in Motion
When integrated into your quarterly planning, the flywheel might look something like this:
The cadence will vary based on your company’s culture and needs. But at a minimum, strategically structuring your quarter around goal-setting, check-ins, feedback, and more, you’ve laid the groundwork for creating employee engagement. And more importantly, this framework is resilient and non-place-specific. No matter what disruptions lie ahead, focusing on these core practices will enable your company to stay productive, connected, and growing — no matter where you are.
