Improve Employee Engagement

Key Points

  • Increasing employee engagement provides various strategic benefits and is important to organizations that value creativity, productivity and growth.
  • Organizations with engaged employees typically have better financial performance than organizations with disengaged employees.
  • Engaged employees generally have a sense of purpose and exert persistent effort in reaching organizational goals. In contrast, actively disengaged employees are mentally and emotionally "checked out", and may be actively seeking employment elsewhere.
  • Long-term employee engagement depends on a culture that provides the environment and benefits typically valued by most employees. As a result, improving employee engagement may require a number of diverse campaigns and initiatives.
