Employers want employees who will do their best work or ‘go the extra mile’. Employees want jobs that are worthwhile and that inspire them. More and more organisations are looking for a win-win solution that meets their needs and those of their employees. What they increasingly say they are looking for is an engaged workforce.
A recent report commissioned by the UK Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) argues that wider delivery of employee engagement could have a positive impact on UK competitiveness and performance both during the downturn and in powering through to recovery.
Engaged employees will stay with you through difficult times, will invest extra effort, commit to learning, support strategic change, strengthen your relationships with your clients, and add value to your organisation. Employees who are not truly engaged may be looking to leave, and may be vulnerable to poaching by your competitors. When reliably measured, positive employee engagement can be correlated to positive business outcomes.
Twelve Winds Consulting can independently assess the culture and atmosphere of your organisation not only to ascertain if employees are happy, but if they are engaged. We will assist you to build engagement among your most valuable employees, ensuring that you retain them and the value that they bring to you.
