Engaged Employees Are Not Enough
Employee engagement is a work behavior characterized by high levels of commitment, enthusiasm and purposeful involvement in one’s work and the organization. Engaged employees perform better and stay in the organization longer, and increased engagement often correlates with greater productivity. This is important because even modest improvements in productivity can translate into increases in incremental value. For example, consider a medium-sized company with 3,000 employees that has an average revenue-per-employee of $100,000. If individual productivity improves by only 5%, that productivity gain is worth $15 million across the company.
