Employee engagement relates to the level of an employee’s commitment and connection to an organization. Executives from around the world say that enhancing employee engagement is one of their top five global business goals. As a critical business driver in today’s highly competitive environment, employee engagement can have a significant impact on your company’s bottom line. According to the Workplace Research Foundation, increasing employee engagement investments by 10% can increase profits by $2,400 per employee per year.
A highly engaged workforce is the key to retaining top talent within your organization, driving high levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty for sustained growth. However, how do you know if your workforce is engaged or not? Do you realize the financial impact that low employee engagement is having on your business’s bottom line? Once you identify lack of employee engagement as an issue, how can you solve this problem?
