5 Benefits of Employee Engagement
Employee engagement is beneficial in every business. Having employees happy and highly engaged are often cited as key determinants towards an evolving, productive work environment.
Here are 5 key reasons why employee engagement can help give companies the performance boost needed to differentiate from their competitors:
#1: Better engagement, better productivity
Greater emotional and functional commitment amongst employees plays a notable part in the overall performance of an organization. Companies with engaged employees have been found to perform over 200% more productively than those not completely involved with their members of staff.
#2: Improved creativity through engagement
Creativity is becoming increasingly more useful within the workplace, playing a key part in the long-term survival of an organization. Employees dissatisfied with the level of engagement within a company have very little motivation to think creatively. However, highly engaged employees have a greater tendency to maintain a more creative and innovative approach to solve problems and make decisions. (Right Management 2009)
#3: Stronger employee loyalty with engagement
Over 70% of employees are actively searching for new job opportunities. This statistic highlights an age-old problem facing modern-day managers; keeping employees engaged. Ultimate Software’s 2016 National Study on Workplace Satisfaction found that over 75% of employees would stay within an organisation for a longer duration if they are adequately engaged.

#4: Higher business team profitability
Highly engaged employees generally feel more motivated to produce higher quality work, which results in higher quality services towards customers. Organisations comprising of highly engaged employees tend to benefit from 26% higher revenue per employees. (Taleo Research, 2009)
