WHAT IS EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT & WHY IS IT IMPORTANT IN BUSINESS?
As we watch the news and watch our organizations; we can see there is a definite problem with employees engaging in the workplace (or NOT we should say). There are alarming statistics regarding employee engagement (or the lack of), and how that affects an organization’s bottom line.
Like the saying “Happy wife, happy life,” the same goes inside an organization. “HAPPY EMPLOYEE, HAPPY WORKPLACE!” Why is it that we treat employees like expenses on our payroll, than the awesome assets that we hired for their talent and skills?
Bridging the GAP inside an organization between the employee and the business strategy is the way to increase engagement, productivity, performance, and overall revenue. Isn’t that the goal? Do you understand employee engagement? Employee engagement is driven by behaviors of leadership, the effectiveness of processes and procedures, and the morale of the company. Low employee engagement tanks your productivity and revenue. It leads to higher employee turnover and employee retention costs that are above industry statistics.
We say that culture is an inexpensive way to attract and retain the most impressive talent in the industry. Of course, wages need to align with industry standards, but many employees will stay with their company if they love it and their boss
WHAT THE HECK IS EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT?
The statistics are alarming in the industry. Gallup, Culture Amp, and other large firms concentrate heavily on surveys revolving around collecting data regarding employee engagement. On our industry statistics page, we have some mind blowing stats for you to check out!
But other then the statistics, the way your employees act, their behaviors, their attitudes, the morale, their performance levels and productivity metrics, and their communication are triggers to employee engagement. Are employees in a good mood or not? Are employees happy at work or not? Are employees producing effectively or not? These are simple questions and have simple answers if the management team just observes for a bit.
Most of all, the employees will also reflect the same behaviors from the management team – so if we think it is all the employees, take a closer look! Your management team may be the ones rubbing off on the team!
