Why Engagement

There are many definitions of employee engagement and one of these states “engagement is about creating opportunities for employees to connect with their colleagues, managers and wider organisation. It is also about creating an environment where employees are motivated to want to connect with their work and really care about doing a good job…it is a concept that places flexibility, change and continuous improvement at the heart of what it means to be an employee and an employer in a twenty-first century workplace.” (Truss, C., 2009 as cited in McLeod and Clarke, 2009)
An engaged employee is a member of staff committed to the organisation’s values and beliefs. We know that if people like what they do, they will do it better.

Here are some stats to show just how engagement staff perform in organisations and how much of a financial impact this can have.

  • According to a survey completed by HR Magazine in 2010 a massive 98.9% of the respondents feel employee engagement does have a direct impact on business success
  • Research from the CIPD concluded that companies with highly engaged employees achieve a financial performance four times greater than companies with poor engagement
  • The department for Business Innovation and Skills recently calculated that unengaged workers cost the UK economy £59.4 billion a year
  • Companies with greater than 10% profit growth had 39% more engaged employees and 45% fewer disengaged employees than those with less than 10% growth. (Hewitt employee engagement survey)
