When an organization has high engagement, employees are giving extra discretionary effort in their jobs, staying, and referring prospective employees and customers. Also, organizations with high engagement are more profitable and have more productive and less absent employees.
We discuss the core parts of engagement, including:
• Alignment with goals • Teamwork • Co-worker trust • Manager effectiveness and trust in senior leaders • Job satisfaction • Feeling valued • Benefits and pay
Throughout the conversation, there are specific, actionable ways for leaders to increase engagement.
