Employee Engagement was a popular Twitter buzzword in 2013. But instead of #eatcleantrainmean, when relating to talent strategy at your organization, this is one you should be paying attention to. Employee Engagement is crucial to a company’s success and many managers don’t realize that they aren’t properly engaging their employees.
There are some startling statistics that illustrate that Employee Engagement is an issue that should be taken seriously. If organizations increased investment in a range of good workplace practices which relate to engagement by just 10%, they could increase profits by $2,400 per employee. However, Gallup reports that 70% of employees are either disengaged or actively disengaged. They are doing the bare minimum to get by in their jobs and are not presenting innovative ideas to help the company reach its full potential. You want engaged employees that help the company grow; and it starts with the right management techniques.
