Employee engagement

Employee engagement is vital because how employees behave will have an impact on the employer’s success. Employers should take steps to harness the creativity, commitment, passion, capability and energy of their workforce.

A typical way to measure employee engagement is to conduct a staff engagement survey, which can provide organisations with employee feedback to help them to identify where they are maximising employee potential and where attention is needed to improve staff motivation, productivity and retention.
