4 Reasons Why Employee Engagement Matters

Research shows that employee engagement is very important but why? These are 4 reasons why we think employee engagement matters.
Research has shown that employee engagement is important, but why? Employee engagement is a word you hear throughout the industry often and the definition varies. People performance specialist and author Kevin Kruse defines it as, “the emotional commitment the employee has to the organization and its goals.” With all the talk about what employee engagement is, there should be more explanation of why it matters. Here are our top 4 reasons why employee engagement matters.

Happiness

47% of people actively looking for new positions say company culture is the main reason according to Hays. Company culture, acknowledgement and feedback are some of the most important factors for an employee’s happiness. When these factors lack, so does their happiness. Happy employees are not always engaged but all engaged employees are happy.  

Retention & Recruitment

Employees who feel they are contributing and engaged are less likely to leave their jobs. Low turnover means less is spent on recruiting and training replacements. Employee engagement not only helps you keep your happy employees, but it can help you find new employees. When you have happy and engaged employees, they are more likely to recommend your company to people who they know are looking for a new job. A study found that 35% of job seekers applied for their current or most recent position because of a referral, this is true especially for millennials.
