Harvard Business Review reveals that the performance connection for happy employees is 3x: on average, they have 31 percent high productivity, 37 percent higher sales, and 3 times higher creativity than their less engaged colleagues. 1
While employee engagement has become a buzzword in the HR community, it is integral to business success—and top employers are paying attention.
Employee engagement is how each individual employee connects with your company and with your customers. An engaged employee is fully involved in and enthusiastic about his or her work. Engaged employees are committed, passionate, and inspired—and they inspire others by examples. They care about the future of the company and are willing to invest the discretionary effort to see that the organization succeeds.
So what’s the buzz about engagement when it comes to business success? Engagement is an effective tool to boost bottom line results through alignment and increased productivity, and also builds a competitive employer brand that attracts, retains, and inspires top performers.
