How Improving Employee Engagement Helps Boost Sales - Necesaro | Safety Culture | Scoop.it

Quote from site: "Employee engagement is linked to retention, productivity, safety, absenteeism, company culture, and even customer engagement, as many organizational leaders appreciate. What C-suite leaders may not fully recognize is that employee engagement also influences profitability and sales. Employee engagement directly impacts the bottom line, since engaged employees sell more than disengaged employees. Therefore, companies who hope to find a sustainable competitive edge should set up a Voice of the Employee program to understand how to increase employee engagement among their staffers."

Safety Culture Plus

If you run a small business, sometimes it is hard to keep up with all the rules and regulations. However, there are some very basic elements that must be implemented into a management system. One example is Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) Proposed ‘I2P2′ Rule.According to OSHA, the proposed rule will “require employers to develop and implement a program that minimizes worker exposure to safety and health hazards.”

But the importance of EH&S is even more far-reaching."  Note:  We are still discussing Safety First to develop a Safety Culture.  My note to this article: "Safety must be a Value to the organization and not a priority or safety first."
