Employee Engagement

How engaged is your workforce?

How to measure – and increase – employee engagement in the workplace

An engaged workforce is more productive, with lower absenteeism rates, and with higher employee retention rates. And because engaged employees care about their jobs, they tend to provide higher levels of customer service – leading to increased customer satisfaction. These are all great benefits to an organisation, often resulting in increased profitability, so it’s well worth investing in employee engagement.

How to increase employee engagement

There are a number of factors that contribute to staff engagement and employee satisfaction:
