Let’s face it. Engagement is critical to productivity. But in the post-pandemic workplace, are managers too busy fighting fires to focus on keeping employees engaged? In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, Brandon Laws sits down with Pamela Hackett, author of Manage to Engage: How Great Managers Create Remarkable Results, to discuss the ins and outs of employee engagement. Whether the team is working in the office, from home, or a combination of the two, learn how managers can better motivate and connect with their teams.


  • The pandemic taught us about the under-engaged, disengaged, and those resistant to change.
  • The direct boss has the greatest impact on employee engagement.
  • To engage, managers must be intentional about connecting with employees on a routine basis.
  • Managers must seek to engender confidence in their teams which ultimately leads to a greater sense of purpose and engagement.
