Typical employee engagement strategies don’t work and this is evident by the fact that one-third of employees are not engaged with their job. This lack of engagement costs the U.S. economy up to $605 billion through loss of productivity. Retaining unengaged workers is also challenging, especially when a strong economy gives employees many work opportunities elsewhere. If your employees don’t have solid reasons to stay, they will easily find jobs elsewhere.
Attracting and retaining top talent is the primary purpose of employee engagement. And its importance can’t be stated enough. Employee engagement helps reduce staff turnover, improves productivity, and makes more money for the firm. When your employees are engaged, they are far more content and enthusiastic about their work. Employee engagement should result in each employee giving their best, committed work every day while embracing the goals and values of the organization. This engagement is something that can be fostered and significantly increased. To accomplish this means gathering data. Stonehill tailors employee engagement surveys to gage employee enthusiasm and commitment to your company.
