Companies with engaged employees have greater retention and commitment than their competition. An engaged employee is an individual who has trust and belief in the organization’s leadership and confidence that the organization’s culture and environment takes their well-being into account.
According to Gallup, employees who are not engaged have:
- 37% higher absenteeism,
- 18% lower productivity, and
- 15% lower profitability.
Simply put, disengaged employees are costing you money.
Engaged people aren’t just motivated to work, they believe their efforts are meaningful. They are knowledgeable, attentive, and committed in their work. Increasing employee engagement gives you a strategic advantage over your competition and increases your bottom line.
