Employee engagement is the key to a happy and healthy business
Employee engagement is all about getting your staff enthusiastically engaged in their work. Get that right and they’ll be committed to striving harder to achieving your organisation’s objectives and enhancing its reputation.
Fail to address employee engagement and you could end up with a workforce that has low morale and motivation and increased cases of staff absence. As a result productivity and your profits will inevitably take a damaging blow.
The benefits of effective employee engagement
Engaged employees are happy and contented workers. They don’t just work to get paid; thy have an emotional connection with your business.
Inside the mind of engaged employees
- They don’t think twice about going the extra mile
- They have increased self-worth and self-motivation
- They are dedicated to reaching a common goal
- They have a happier mood and interact better with your customers.
What employee engagement is and isn’t
Many organisations conduct surveys gauging the satisfaction levels of their workforce but they are missing half the story. Employees can be happy in their job, which is all well and good but it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re committed to their work. They may not be the ones who will put a bit of extra graft in to hit deadlines or impress clients, for instance.
Why should you make employee engagement your key focus?
Having members in your team who are extra committed is an obvious benefit to your company. What company wouldn’t want people like that? But therein lays a potential risk. Can you afford your competitors potentially poaching a valuable asset to your organisation?
Employee retention is an issue for any organisation
It makes sense therefore to have an attractive customised benefits-led programme that will engage employees’ interest in staying. But more than that, raising awareness of the benefits you offer them is crucially important too.
Get employees switched on to your employee services
Employee services will only add value to your organisation if your people actually use them. All too often, people simply aren’t aware of what’s available – or previous programmes have been so complicated they’ve given up.
