Research consistently shows that engaged employees outperform their non-engaged coworkers. In today’s global economy, even a small improvement in productivity can have a positive effect on your organization’s performance and competitiveness.
When an organization creates the internal conditions that enable people to do their jobs effectively, drive high levels of employee engagement and energize the workforce, the combination can produce a significant performance lift. We call this sustainable engagement, or engagement to the power of three. Why? Because marrying engagement, enablement and energy propels organizations to far greater heights than each single factor alone.
The questions to ask are: What gets in the way of our organization achieving exponential engagement? What are the organizational elements that drive engagement, enablement and energy? How do we measure and improve workforce engagement?
Organizations that successfully address these questions can begin to build sustainable engagement among their employees and improve performance.
