The Time for Employee Engagement is NOW!

Has your workplace discovered the benefits of engaging employees? If not, you are missing out on the opportunity to benefit from more highly motivated employees who share the joint commitment to improving your product or service.

We have written about the importance of involving employees. Organizations that have not begun involving their employee need to do so before it is too late.

As the economy improves, there will be more opportunities for employees to find new jobs and leave their employers. The employees most likely to do so are often our best, brightest, and hardest working, the employees we can least afford to lose.

Employees who believe they play an important role in the success of their organization are less likely to feel the need to look elsewhere. An effective employee engagement process that provides everyone  the opportunity to participate in real decision making and process improvement will help retain employees.

The time for employee engagement is now. An effective process does not happen overnight, particularly if the employer dies not have a history of involving employees. If we wait too long, the benefits of engagement may be lost.
