Realizing Why It Pays To Engage

Organizations perform at their best when they make their employees’ commitment, potential, creativity, and capability central to their business practices. Understanding and managing how people behave at work can make the difference between success and failure. When employees fell respected, involved, heard, and valued by leaders and coworkers, they work to their full potential for the organization.

Although organizations may say they feel employee engagement is important, without making a commitment to engagement, people’s talents and potential can remain untapped. But committing to employee engagement is a powerful action that can mean big changes in an organization’s performance and in employee’s well-being, to the benefit of organizations and society.

Engagement is strongly related to higher levels of innovation. That’s because engaged employees are able and encouraged to share their ideas and think creatively. Fifty-nine percent of engaged employees say that their job brings out their most creative ideas, compared to only 3 percent of disengaged employees.
