Improving employee engagement can not only make a difference in employee satisfaction and productivity, but it can also increase employee loyalty. Increased employee loyalty reduces turnover which can positively impact the bottom line.
Big and small organizations alike are realizing the need to create a culture of engagement that maximizes the potential of each employee.
According to the bestselling book First, Break All the Rules, authors Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman assert that one out of every five employees is actively engaged in his work.
This means that 80% of employees are disengaged with their work.
How much productivity is your organization losing from these employees?
There are many benefits and advantages to understanding employee engagement. The first step is to ask yourself the following questions:
- Are your employees engaged in their work?
- Are they loyal to your business?
- How do you know these things?
- And if you don’t, how do you find out?
You can conduct a Workplace Engagement Survey (WES) which measures the degree to which your employees connect with their work and feel committed to the organization and its goals.
Research shows that there is no one general set of actions that will guarantee your success in raising engagement in your company. Proactive companies have chosen to take action at the organizational, managerial, or employee levels.
Here are 3 Employee Engagement Strategies:
- Increase Motivation
- Provide Training
The first step can be to help increase the effectiveness of your leaders and managers. Teach them how to motivate their employees. Empower your managers to maximize employee performance by understanding how an employee is motivated.
Training can also help improve employee engagement. Employee engagement increases when employees receive regular training, especially if training is focused on soft skills rather than technical skills.
