The Human Resource department is always interested in ways to increase employee engagement. There are effective steps that can be taken and do not require grand plans.
The goal for employee engagement is to help employees align their personal career goals with the company’s goals. Companies do not like to see their employees just collecting a paycheck. They want their employees engaged in the present and future success of the company.
According to HR Morning INFOGRAPHIC: Employee engagement — what it is and isn’t, engaged employees lead to higher service, higher customer satisfaction, increased sales, higher levels of profit, and higher shareholder returns. These are significant benefits to the company.
The employee needs to trust that focusing on the company’s goals does not restrict the employee from reaching their own personal career goals. Trust is a critical factor in the success of a company increasing their employee engagement.
