The Business of Engagement
Personal Group has always been curious about the connection between happy and engaged employees and their influence on productivity and business performance. So we conducted a series of interviews with 10 UK CEO’s and business leaders, over a 12-month period, to test our hypothesis that happy employees are more engaged employees, and therefore more productive.
UK unemployment is the lowest it’s been for a decade and yet national productivity remains flat. Our interest in the subject of productivity led us to collaborate with Criticaleye and Debi O’Donovan (Founder of Reward and Employee Benefits Association) to conduct a series of 10 interviews with CEO’s and senior leaders across the UK economy. The purpose was to see if these leaders shared our view that productivity and employee engagement are linked. We will be releasing these interview and extracts of the white paper, The Business of Engagement, over the next 3 weeks so follow us on LinkedIn or Twitter to receive all of the content as it is published.

The Transformational Business Impact of Employee Engagement
Employee engagement is a concept that describes the extent to which employees are emotionally invested in their work and willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. An engaged employee is generally happy in their work, emotionally attached to their employer, believes in the values of their business in which they are employed, and most importantly, is more productive than their disengaged peers.
