No organization can be more blessed than those whose employees want to contribute their best and feel excited and motivated to come to work, are absorbed in the work they are doing, and feel like giving new and fresh ideas that work. Employees who go out of their way and contribute work and ideas towards improving the bottom line or enhancing its standing in the market are priceless.
Yet, such an organization is not one that is created in the heavens. It becomes so by inculcating a mantra for bringing this feeling about in its employees. That mantra is “employee engagement”.
Employee engagement is at the root of keeping the organization in a state of rare energy and enthusiasm. It is all about bringing about a milieu in which employees want to give in their best without being told to or asked to. An engaged employee is an organization’s best bet and its number one asset. When employees are motivated, the organization is a happy place to be in. An engaged employee associates her own interest with the organization’s to such an extent that she feels that what she does for the organization is a benefit for her own career.
Characteristics of organizations with engaged employees
Engaged employees are hard workers who put in lots of extra efforts. They show high levels of loyalty and satisfaction with their jobs. Their levels of morale and commitment are high. The benefits for organizations which have such employees are obvious:
- Their turnover levels are very low
- Their productivity, innovation, attendance and customer satisfaction are very high
- They enjoy a great reputation
- They stay ahead of the competition in almost all the areas that matter.
Is there a means to bringing about employee engagement? How do organizations learn this art? How do organizations handle engaged employees, and how do they engage employees that are not engaged?
