What is employee engagement ?
Employee engagement is basic human nature regarding how people want to be treated. Though that may sound like common sense, it does take skill, thought and effort to effectively engage employees.
An “engaged employee” is someone who is fully involved in, and enthusiastic about their work, and thus will act in a way that furthers their organization’s interests. They care about the future of the company and are willing to invest the effort needed to see the organization succeed.
A recent Tower Watson survey found that operating margins were 2 times higher in companies with high sustainable employee engagement than companies with low employee engagement. Engaging your employees can improve your bottom line.
Why should you care?
Employee engagement is one of the major factors that impacts your company’s results. Engaging employees is directly linked to increased profitability in organizations.
Employees are far more likely to stay with a company that challenges and rewards them, and takes a personal interest in their professional development. Engaging your employees will reduce your turnover.
High performing companies normally have 5 times the number of engaged employees compared to their low performing counterparts, and turnover rates 40% lower!
