Remember that saying: “When Mom isn’t happy, then no one is happy.”
It’s true. I’m a mom. So I would know.
I also know the same can be said for employee engagement. When your employees aren’t happy, guess what… your company isn’t happy either.
What are the differences between a happy employee and a disengaged one? Many. Not only are there differences in attitude and performance, but there are definite differences in their value to your company. Many HR professionals struggle to quantify the business impact of a disengaged workforce, and to justify the expense of programs or initiatives aimed at improving employee engagement. But all is not lost. When companies make the engagement of their employees a core initiative, there is not only bottom line return, but when an employee is happy, the company is happy too.
