Employee Engagement Leads to Better Productivity and Business Success

Author: Administrator
In a recent Gallup report, the findings show that disengaged employees cost the United States economy $300 billion in lost productivity; estimates indicate that Australia suffers a massive $32billion annual productivity loss.The Gallup Global Survey 2011 results show that only 18% of Australians say that they love their work.

Employee engagement in the workplace is a huge contributing factor to the organisation's success. It plays a major role in productivity and employee retention.One of Australia's productivity gurus, Neil Plumridge of Ernst and Young, said that he can predict with almost 100% accuracy his next quarter's returns through his staff engagement survey.Research into the retail sector by AON Hewitt found that sales people were selling 60% more than disengaged counterparts.

Positive Employee Engagement Breeds Growth

Whether you're a large enterprise, a medium-sized organisation, or a small business, the rule of thumb for better synergy in the workplace and positive growth is good talent management from bottom up. Boosting the staff's morale improves working relationships, increases productivity, better customer service and higher employee satisfaction, which will all lead to a more prosperous business. This is what the business advisors at Andrew Castle Consulting hope for their clients across Australia and overseas. They believe that positive employee engagement and effective talent management translate to outstanding output.
