Would most businesses like to improve profitability by up to 27%? Would they like their employees to be up to 43% more productive, have 67% less days off sick and be 87% less likely to leave?
Of course they would!
Improving employee engagement is a key factor in driving performance and profitability in business today. But what is Engagement? Engagement can be defined as a “positive attitude held by the employee towards the organisation and its values. An engaged employee is aware of business context, and works with colleagues to improve performance within the job for the benefit of the organisation. The organisation must work to nurture, maintain and grow engagement, which requires a two-way relationship between employer and employee”.1
A recent government report2 highlights the importance of effective employment engagement strategies, particularly in the current economic climate where many businesses have restructured, retaining key personnel who they need to remain. The evidence is compelling.
- Greatly improved staff retention
- Reduced accidents at work
- Increased advocacy of the organisation, its services and products
- Higher productivity Greater profitability
- Reduced absenteeism
- Better customer service
