  • ℹ️ Description

Let's take a look at human resource management trends in employee engagement. Employee engagement is defined as a combination of job satisfaction, ability, and a willingness to perform for the organization at a high level and over an extended period of time.

This combination of satisfaction, ability, and willingness is a more critical predictor of company performance today than ever before. One Gallup survey recently noted that around 32% of US workers are engaged with their work, and worldwide it is even worse at a dismal 13% engagement. In another survey, Gallup reported that companies with the most engaged workforce had 147% higher earnings per share, better productivity and profitability, and lower absenteeism and turnover than their competitors; so there is certainly strong reason to work toward a more engaged workforce.

Many managers and employees think that compensation is the most important item in employee engagement, but that is simply not the case—at least in most organizations.Engaging employees is not an easy task, but we do have some evidence of things that work—at least in some cases. Overall compensation and benefits matter, but they are not enough.

It’s important to understand the importance of improved employee engagement.
