Significance of employee engagement

Workplace engagement is about so much more than having happy employees and it goes far beyond job satisfaction. An engaged employee has an emotional commitment to your organization and its goals and gives a greater amount of discretionary effort to their work.

Strategy execution and employee engagement are inseparable. By a survey nor created through an after-the-fact performance evaluation, employee engagement cannot be determined.

With the employees’ inclusion in the strategy development Employee engagement begins during the strategy execution phase, builds with on-going, actionable feedback and mentoring, and reaches its crescendo when employees are rewarded for their performance upon the successful completion of the strategy. It’s important to note that motivated employees are more likely to perform better in their roles. When working with clients, suppliers and customers, and improve their experience this will filter down to how they come across. You’ll get better feedback, build greater trust and create an even stronger reputation within the industry.

Companies that measure staff engagement regularly are most likely to be successful and have much higher levels of engagement. On top of that, employee’s unbiased opinion will give you the information that you need to rectify issues and build on your strengths. It’s also a great opportunity for you to gather important information on challenges, new ideas and customer needs.
