Employee engagement has become a buzzword that has been used so often it’s almost meaningless.
Kevin Kruse, the author of Employee Engagement 2.0 defines it this way:
Employee engagement is the emotional commitment the employee has to the organization and its goals.This emotional commitment means engaged employees actually care about their work and their company. They don’t work just for a paycheck, or just for the next promotion, but work on behalf of the organization’s goals.
Some of us want to improve employee engagement because we care about our employees personally and want them to be happy. Some of us know engaged employees directly predict improved business outcomes. Whatever your underlying reason for focusing on engagement, it’s a worthy goal.
Study after study shows that when employees are engaged with their work and colleagues, they work harder, they stay with the company longer, and they are more productive and efficient.
