Employee Engagement

What is staff / employee engagement?

‘Employee engagement’ otherwise known as ‘staff engagement’ is essentially the involvement and enthusiasm that staff have in their work and for their place of work. It is the extent to which the workforce of a business feels passionate about their roles, their commitment to the organisation and its vison/values/mission, as well as the discretionary effort they put into their working life.

Why offer staff engagement surveys and feedback sessions?

Carrying out employee engagement activities helps a business to measure and manage staff views on vital factors of workplace culture. Businesses will better understand if employees are actively engaged (or disengaged) with their work and with their employer. It can provide insight on areas for development as well as positively received areas of workplace culture. Engaged employees will be happier and more productive, make better decisions and work more cohesively than employees who are actively disengaged. Working on improving employee engagement can decrease absence and turnover, improve retention and job satisfaction, and increase productivity and morale at work.

It’s important to offer effective channels in which the employee voice can be heard. Positively acting on your employee feedback is a critical step in any engagement process.
