The Secret Behind Employee Engagement

Ok, no drama (its a blog for goodness sake right?), here it is = people are engaged when they work with other engaged people. Huh? In other words, top performers do well when working with other top performers. They raise each others game.

Here's the opposite. According to Leadership IQ - 87% of employees say working with a low performer has made them want to change jobs & 93% say working with low performers decreased their productivity. One more, 86% of employee morale decreases after their first 6 months on the job.

So as the aphorism goes "a rising tide lifts all boats". Build a team of 'A' players in every department and don't settle for less.

The phrase "build a team" implies that the building begins at the individual level.

If organizational leaders insure (insist?) that employee engagement is an imperative within their business culture, that individual development will be much more likely.

The essence of engagement then resides with the management team, for theirs is the responsibility to develop employees for continuous performance improvement.

If/when managers manage with a consistent eye to employee engagement (communication, opportunity, resources, and their own engagement), that development follows.
