This morning we published an article about your employee’s and engagement: Wondering How To Keep Your Employee’s Engaged?
Yet you might still be asking, “Why? Why is this engagement so important?” SocialCast put together a great infographic illustrating the reasons why engaged employees are great for your business.
With happiness at the work environment being at an all time low for Americans, keeping your employee’s happy is a sure way to KEEP them, period. Various factors play into this:
- Work-Life Balance
- Feeling Safe in the Work Environment
- Relationship with Supervisor
- Opportunities to Use Skills
- Corporate Culture
- Job Security
- Work Itself
When the above factors are noted and acted upon by management it results in engaged and happy employees. Happy employees mean that your companies profitability will increase. This is because they feel driven to help the company that helps them. The companies with high levels of employee engagement saw a 19.2% increase in operating income; while those that didn’t make employee engagement a priority saw a 32.7% decline in operating income.
There is a saying, “happy wife- happy life”, for the business world this could be adapted to, “Happy Employees = Productivity & Growth”.
