Employee Engagement plays a vital role in the company’s profitability and financial health.

FREMONT, CA: Employee engagement can be critical to a company's success, given its clear links to job satisfaction and employee morale. Communication is a major part of creating and maintaining employee engagement. Engaged employees are more likely to be productive and higher performing. They also often display a greater commitment to a company's values and goals. Employers can ensure employee engagement in many other ways, including communicating expectations, offering rewards and promotions for their admirable work, keeping employees informed about the company's performance, and providing them with spontaneous feedback. Other strategies include making efforts to make employees feel valued and respected, and that their ideas are recognized and understood.

Employee engagement believes that their work is meaningful and they are appreciated and backed by their supervisors, where they have been entrusted with the success of the company. It has been a considered major part of management theory since the 1990s and became widely related in the 2000s. While it has its critics, mostly based on how difficult it can be to measure, employee engagement has been found to have a direct correlation  to a company's profitability and financial health

Here are five different methods that the employees engage themselves in work and they might feel satisfied in their position:

1. Ensuring the values and ethics of employees

2. Formulating the interconnective goals of employees

3. Motivate the employees to connect

4. Track the need of the employees

5. Priorities matter more than plan   

The values and ethics of employees should not be secret, because they are the pillar of the company and also publish on the website or internally on a shared platform such as confluence. Schedule time to openly discuss organisation values with the team members. 69 per cent of employees feel their effort is well recognized, yet 65 per cent of workers feel that their contribution is not recognized. Don't underestimate the power of rewards, an unexpected bonus or small token of appreciation has to be done. Peer recognition is another powerful way to reward people.

The employees should set clear goals. Half of the employees admit that they don’t know what’s expected of them at work. So, when we set a target for team members, they naturally feel motivated to achieve it.

For beginners, employee retention and turnover rates can be an indicator of general employee sentiment. A good way to keep a pulse on engagement is to survey the employees such as job satisfaction, work-life balance and benefits. It needs to be a constant point of emphasis for the teams, and it even becomes more important when a company is dealing with various disruptions.

High employee engagement levels are tied to reduced turnover, improved retention, greater productivity, lower absenteeism, and a whole slew of other fist-pump-worthy benefits.
