Engaged employees care about their work and about the performance of the company
Managers from around the world say improving employee engagement is one of their top five global business strategies. Not only does collaboration have the potential to have a profound impact on staff retention, productivity and loyalty, it is also an important link to customer satisfaction, corporate reputation and the total number of stakeholders. Increasingly, organizations are turning to Human Resources (HR) to set the agenda for employee engagement and commitment to gain competitive advantage. Most managers now realize that personal interactions directly affect the organization’s financial and profitability. Involvement and productivity may be affected by social cohesion, feeling supported by a personal manager, sharing information, common goals and vision, communication, and trust. Employees want to feel valued and respected; they want to know that their work is meaningful and that their ideas are sound. The most active employees are most productive and dedicated to the organizations in which they work.
