BrandPost: Putting People First: The Power of Employee Engagement

In the course of compiling its most recent employee engagement Meta-Analysis Report, Gallup crunched decades of employee engagement data to demonstrate the clear connections between highly engaged teams and an organization’s bottom line.

Among the findings:

  • Companies with highly engaged employees are 21% more profitable.
  • Engaged employees are 20% more productive.  

As Gallup observes, the relationship between engagement and performance is significant—and “highly generalizable” across organizations.

As an employer, you can make adulting easier by giving employees back the valuable free time they’ve come to miss.  

When employees say they want work-life balance, what they really want is the ability to get everything done that they need to do. That includes work, errands, household chores, as well as hobbies and recreation. Work shouldn’t take over to the point that they no longer have time to live their lives.
