Employee enagagement and leadership

What is Employee Engagement?

Many organisations are talking about employee engagement and how it influences the productivity of a business.

For some years the Gallup organisation has surveyed levels of employee engagement in Great Britain and around the world. They describe employee engagement as:

“those employees who are loyal
and psychologically committed to
the organisation”.

Engaged employees are not only more productive but they will also stay longer with the organisation (reducing knowledge drain and recruitment costs). They also have less accidents and sickness (reducing risk and non-quality costs).

Where businesses are operating in highly competitive markets or competing against products and service from low cost economies, employee engagement is a key success factor.

High levels of employee engagement will enhance the competitiveness of a business in two ways:

  • by driving up productivity thus helping to support cost effectiveness
  • by protecting the knowledge / skills base, enabling the organisation to offer ‘added values’.
  • Both contribute directly to improved sales and margins.
