I totally agree

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

Debra Walker's curator insight, March 6, 1:23 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.

The quickest way to overcome challenges and get unstuck is to say, “I’m stuck!” When we can identify where we’re stuck and then bring someone else’s attention to the challenge at hand.

Eleven Ways To Create Real Employee Engagement From Ground Up

Eleven Ways To Create Real Employee Engagement From Ground Up | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

These days we hear plenty about employee engagement. We know disengaged employees are bad for business. We know an office full of innovative, collaborative employees who feel like “owners” is the key to surviving a brutal marketplace. We may even know the statistics like Human Capital Institute’s revelations that companies with highly engaged employees enjoy profit growth at three times the rate of their competitors, and that increased engagement reduces turnover — one of the largest hidden costs in business — by 87 percent.

We learned early on that our growth and success depended on our employees: how hard they worked, the ideas they had, how committed they were when times got tough, the types of relationships they formed with customers, and so much more. Keeping our employees inspired and happy, and honestly acknowledging how much we appreciated their loyalty and efforts, were some of our top priorities as business owners.

What the Seinfeld Actors Can Teach You About Hiring. No Joke | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Recent Gallup research says that the number of engaged employees--those who are involved and enthusiastic contributors in the workplace--is trending upward somewhat from 2009, which should be good news for businesses. Gallup surveys have long shown that companies with higher percentages of engaged employees grow faster--and are more profitable--than those that don't.
