The four reasons you need an employee engagement programme
Do you want your business to be successful? Your foundation needs to be built on staff members who are happy, motivated and productive; staff who are engaged. By investing in an effective employee engagement programme, your company benefits in abundant ways, here are four of the most valuable.
RETAIN TOP TALENT
High staff turnover is a huge expense for companies and it leads to low morale, which in turn can lead to further staff resignations. With a successful employee engagement programme, staff feel recognised and appreciated and this gives them a tangible reason to stay. By reducing turnover you save time and money, as you recruit and train fewer new staff members.
Through an employee engagement programme, staff feel they are being recognised for their work and this motivates them to work harder. Engaged staff are more efficient, energetic and more proactive. You will benefit from lower absenteeism rates and greater teamwork as employees pull together to work towards common goals or objectives.
By implementing an employee engagement programme you send a message to your staff members that you value their work and their commitment to the company. Staff who feel like an essential part of the business are happier, satisfied, more committed and more likely to promote your brand. Employees who believe they are appreciated, will care about the company and this increases loyalty.
IMPROVE COMPANY MORALE
Engaged employees interact more and help to create a happy, positive and thriving work environment, which leads to less sick days and fewer people arriving late for work. These motivated staff members strive for job satisfaction and work harder to reach goals and improve the company’s bottom line. This encourages positive behaviour and creates a culture of success.
An employee engagement programme is a cost-effective way for a company to show their staff that their hard work and commitment is appreciated and valued. In return you get increased employee retention, performance, motivation, morale and productivity.
