We have all heard the old saying “Employees don’t leave their job, they leave their manager”. While a bad manager might be ONE of the reasons a good employee leaves a company, it is not the ONLY one.
How engaged and passionate are your employees?
How do they feel about:
• Job satisfaction
• Quality of peers
• Satisfaction with compensation & benefit
Are they likely to:
•Recommend company products or services
• Recommend as a great place to work
We all know that employees who are engaged in the business bring a competitive advantage to the company.
Emotionally connected employees are the best employees because they are productive, and they feel validated and appreciated.
Engaged employees want to feel like they are making a positive contribution and they perceives their job as important
Engaged employees are less likely to leave (leading to substantial cost savings for your organization in terms of recruitment and training) but they also demonstrate improved performance as individuals and teams.
Engaged employees who have a passion for the company and for their role in it, whose attitudes inspire an environment of personal growth, working for a common cause, being part of a high-performance team, should be recognized and rewarded.
Why? Because, the lifeblood of every business is its employees!
As an employer, you need to understand why your employees are or are NOT emotionally connected to your company. The answer lies in more than just salaries, training, or benefits.
One surefire way that employee engagement can be improved is by aligning the goals of the business with the goals of the individual.
