Employee Engagement



An "engaged employee" is one who is fully absorbed by and enthusiastic about their work and thus takes positive action to further the organization's reputation and interests.

High-involvement management practices are positively associated with employee morale, employee retention, and financial performance.

Employees with the highest level of commitment perform 20% better and are 87% less likely to leave the organization, which indicates that engagement is linked to organizational performance

In a study of professional service firms, the Hay Group found that offices with engaged employees were up to 43% more productive.

High-commitment organizations (one with loyal and dedicated employees) out-performed those with low commitment by 47% in a 2000 study and by 200% in a 2002 study.

Instead, they are redefining how they can keep contributing to their organizations, but on their own terms. 


Rather than subscribe to the onward and upward motto, they are more interested in staying with what they are doing than following an upward path that someone else has set.
