The Costs Of Ignoring Employee Engagement

Daniel Watson's curator insight, May 2, 2013 3:58 AM


Business owners, who are not aware of the very high cost of ignoring the issue of improving employee engagement levels in their business, doom themselves to remain at the bottom of the business pile.


As more and more research is conducted, the benefits of having engaged employees are becoming obvious, yet awareness of the high costs associated with having dis-engaged employees is not as well known.


This excellent article, suggests that employee engagement really matters in business, and it outlines the 10 key benefits of having engaged employees and identifies five key areas where attention will assist to increase employee engagement levels.

Yu Ji's curator insight, May 2, 2013 9:08 AM

To achieve the highest level of CRM,  not only does customers have to get involved, every employee in organisation should also have the awareness of ownership.

[Infographic]  Evolving SEO tactics: longer posts, Google+ and the tilde | Social Buzz | Scoop.it

This is an infographic about current SEO thinking with tips and tools to help sites rank better on search engines.

 

Most people have a general idea of how to optimize their content for search engines. That search engine algorithms are proprietary and evolving inevitably causes different opinions on SEO. Of course there’s another school of thought that minimal keyword research and a green-light from a SEO plugin are enough to publish a piece.

 

This infographic challenges writers and some of the preconceived notions about SEO. It has a mixture of tips and tools to help you rank better in search...

Great comment MizWalidah. I wold modify one point. Instead of "continually optimizing your meta keywords and tags" I would find ways to ping in fresh content such as User Generated Content from reviews or comments. Once a website I've SEOed is inside of Google's algorithm changing meta values that matter (mostly the page's title) can HURT SEO. I change titles VERY VERY carefully since the first rule of SEO is DO NO DAMAGE. The QDF (Quality Deserves Freshness) movement post Panda and Penguin LOVES it when a page pings, so I love the 1% of visitors who are willing to comment, review or otherwise contribute User Generated Content.

I DON'T play with meta nearly as much as you imply since to do so can look SPAMMY and cause real harm. The most important idea is creating content other people want to share. This is why I love GAMES and CONTESTS especially for bands. High engagement content such as Contests and Games can help with SEO and they can help create a distinct brand all bands need. Appreciate your enthusiasm, but be careful about meta (especially title) changes. Marty

Tom Hood's curator insight, April 28, 2013 7:17 AM

Three insights for me, 1) Social CEO = More Competitiveness (and more openness); 2) Skills identified = Skills identified by CPA Vision & Horizons 2025 Projects, "CEOs regard interpersonal skills of collaboration (75 percent), communication (67 percent), creativity (61 percent) and flexibility (61 percent) as key drivers of employee success to operate in a more complex, interconnected environment"; 3) IBM is a perefect example of a "social company" from CEO to their army of employee bloggers. 

theWebChef's curator insight, April 29, 2013 10:52 AM

Beyond the CEO, the whole "C-Suite" should be social to interpret and intercept ideas and to innovate for the future success of the business. 

Ted Fickes's curator insight, May 20, 2013 2:45 PM

I think a CEO - or any c-suite person - can really screw up the "be social" thing but being good at online networks is probably, by now, a basic expectation for most organizations and businesses. More valuable than a good golf game, perhaps.

Andreas Kuswara's comment, June 11, 2013 9:22 PM
I supposed twitter can be used or any tool can be used for anything,but some tools are made with certain intended affordance by the creator that would make the tool less effective for certain functions. curation in a way is capturing things void of time (i probably drawing too much from museum), while twitter is fast pace timeline of interactive (or one way) discourse.... they seems to be inherently different.

i'm just automatically sceptical when 'one tool can be use for all' theme appear. but it is an interesting suggestion.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's comment, June 11, 2013 9:33 PM
Many people learn one tool and then move on to others. I like to analyze each and use the best features of that particular 2.0 project. I use twitter as a push tool to share info for the most part.
