How Greater Engagement = Greater Profits
I am the owner of EngagedMetrics. We are a software company that specializes in creating custom employee engagement surveys for organizations of all shapes and sizes. In short, we help organizations identify how engaged their employees are using a combination of highly effective surveys, and custom bench-marking. Our surveys paint a clear picture for our clients as to the various levels of engagement throughout the different departments of their organizations. We then can work with the client to determine the best way to enhance engagement in areas where it is weakest.
Why Do These Organizations Care About Their Employee’s Engagement?
Simple: Engaged employees go above and beyond the scope of their nomal duties in order to do the best job possible. They feel a sense of duty that extends beyond simply earning their pay check. Engagement results in better work, and that results in higher profits.
Engagement is also critical for businesses who are trying to stay afloat during touch economic times. As Jim Harter, Ph.D., and Gallup’s chief scientist of employee engagement notes :
When you ask people about their intentions during a recession, it’s pretty clear that disengaged workers are just waiting around to see what happens…Engaged workers, though, have bought into what the organization is about and are trying to make a difference. This is why they’re usually the most productive workers.
We are proud of the way that we add value. If you are interested in learning more about employee engagement, and the specifics of how it is measured and how your organization could benefit, drop by our blog or contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!
