Employee engagement is crucial to an organization's success. Higher levels of employee engagement result in better financial results for the organization, while employees that are not engaged cost companies millions of dollars, escalate numbers of accidents and depreciate the organization value. In order for employees to be more engaged, they need a few things, right? A few of the things that boost employee engagement include, but are not limited to:
- The opportunity to succeed
- Direction (pertaining to their goals and work)
- Feedback on their work, performance and development
- Opportunities for career growth
If organizations dedicate time to ensuring these four criteria are met, they can expect to see engagement levels increase, which will lead to employees who are devoted to their employers, customer-centric and more productive and profitable. Who doesn't want that?!
