What is Employee Engagement?


Question: What is Employee Engagement?
Answer: Employee engagement, also known as worker engagement, is a measurement of an employee’s emotional attachment to his position, coworkers, and company. Engaged employees demonstrate enthusiasm for their jobs, are attentive to their work, and are committed to contributing to their companies’ success.

Engaged workers are considered ideal employees, because they are more productive, more profitable, and less likely to leave their companies. However, recent studies have shown that the level of employee engagement in organizations across the public and private sectors is decreasing.

Companies have begun to take a variety of measures to improve worker engagement, such as holding organization-wide meetings to encourage employee input, and establishing career development systems to help employees move up in the company.
