What is Employee Engagement?

Employee engagement is the term coined by the Human Resources industry to understand and describe, both qualitatively and quantitatively, the relationship between an organization and its employees. An "engaged employee" can be defined as one who is fully absorbed by and enthusiastic about their work and so has a positive attitude towards the organization and its values.

Why is Employee Engagement important?

Employee Engagement is a critical component of business success. Efforts made to develop it will improve employee behaviours and actions, which will be reflected in the employee value proposition, and make the key difference that will elevate your organisation above the competition. Improved employee engagement will lead to:

  • Better team performance and enhanced operations.
  • Adaptability and agility.  
  • Boosted results and ultimately, an improved bottom line.
  • A more attractive indicator of investment by equity investors.

An Employee Engagement Program is more than simply using employee satisfaction or opinion surveys.  A great program enables a business owner or leaders to deeply understand what is happening in their business, gain a read on true employee sentiment and analysis that provides powerful and deep insights. When used effectively, this intel is a key predictive business tool that will inform the Senior Leadership Team of the changes required.
