Wondering how beneficial engaged employees are to any company?
An engaged employee is one who is more productive, more creative, collaborative and healthier than their counterparts, feeling part of a bigger goal and inspired to do the best work. On the contrary, disengaged workers lead to billions in losses because of their lower levels of productivity.
But to avoid the losses, companies have a few ways in which they can engage their employees. Each worker should feel as though their work is recognized and appreciated by the upper management, which helps to motivate them.
The key is building a company culture that makes each employee feel like an essential participant.
