Employee Engagement

Employee EngagementEmployee engagement has been a buzzword for a while now. A typical business approach to managing employee engagement has been “out to lunch”, “fun at work”, team building exercises – a lot of hullabaloo but questionable impact.

Research statistics drive home our “engagement ignorance” when they report that only 31% of employees are found to be actively engaged in their jobs.

However, before launching a quick fix solution it is important to first understand the following:

a) What is Employee Engagement really?
b) What are the factors contributing to disengagement in our organization?
c) What costs do we incur in employee disengagement?
d) What are the ways to create an actively engaged workforce?

We have spent several man-hours in understanding Engagement, studied numerous research statistics and have then devised mechanisms to Analyze the level of engagement at an organization, Measure the direct and indirect costs of disengagement, and Improve employee engagement with our initiatives.

What is Employee Engagement really?

Surveys show a high percentage of people in the work force are not engaged in their work. They are simply going through the motions. Employee Engagement is a measurable degree of an employee’s emotional attachment to their job, colleagues and organization that influences their willingness to learn and perform at work. Research statistics show that:

a) Organizations with higher engaged employees are 43% more productive.
b) There is 52% gap in operating income between companies with highly engaged and not so engaged employees.
c) Employees with highest level of commitment perform 20% better and are 87% less likely to leave

What are the factors leading to Disengagement?

What stimulates and challenges them, what kind of rewards and recognition excites them, what do they expect from workplace relationships, what do they look for in mentoring, etc. Answers to these questions help you in devising the right engagement strategy for YOUR organization as they reveal the reasons and triggers leading to disengagement.
