Why Employee Engagement Matters

Why Employee Engagement Matters | Business Improvement | Scoop.it
Daniel Watson's insight:


Whilst many business owners now realise that employee engagement offers a proven methodology for driving the process of delivering desired business outcomes, research shows that the vast majority of employees in the western world, are not engaged to the level that is required to maximise profitability.


While it is one thing to accept that employee engagement is a key element of operating a successful business, it is another thing entirely to understanding exactly why this is the case, and to use this understanding to raise employee engagement to an optimal level.


This excellent article, explains why employee engagement matters, and then it offers advice on how a business should proceed to develop engaged employees who display maximum job satisfaction along with delivering maximum job contribution.

I totally agree

....and so many businesses don't see it this way. 

Debra Walker's curator insight, March 6, 2014 4:23 PM

I recently read an article that was describing corporate culture as lunch provided everyday & free beer on Friday.  If you take away those superficial connections for an employee - which are merely non cash components of a compensation plan and not a long term contributor to organizational culture - an engaged employee will remain committed to excelling in their role and for the organization.


An unengaged employee will be more impacted by that removal, resulting in connecting with that employee becoming even harder to achieve.


Engagement is multi-layered and more complex than being provided a sandwich so that I can continue to work through what should be a period of refreshment called lunchtime.
