Driving Employee Engagement


Employee engagement—or the commitment and energy that employees bring to work—impacts productivity and performance. According to a recent Gallup poll, only 33 percent of employees are engaged at work.

Engaged vs. Disengaged Employees

Engaged employees are more than just satisfied with their jobs, they are committed to the company and its goals. They have passion, pride and energy for their work and their organization, and are willing to go the extra mile on a regular basis. Employees who are truly engaged stay because they enjoy their work and support the company.

On the flipside, disengaged employees simply work for a paycheck, favorable working conditions or job security.

It’s important to note that employees can enjoy their work and be satisfied without being necessarily engaged.

The Impact of Engagement

Employee engagement has been linked to decreased turnover rates and increased productivity, efficiency and profits. This information indicates that employee engagement is critical to retaining the best and the brightest employees at your organization.

Tips for Raising Employee Engagement

By identifying areas that may be hindering employee engagement, your company can focus on improving those areas to strive toward a more engaged, productive and profitable workforce.

Although there is no tried-and-true way to raise employee engagement, experts agree that you can start by doing the following:

  • Demonstrate a top-down commitment to engagement.
  • Define your engaged purpose.
  • Prove your ability to measure and score engagement levels on an ongoing basis.
