Engaged Employees Stick Around

Engagement. Employees who feel a connection both to their work and your organizational goals will stick around because they want to contribute to making your company successful.

Make it easy for your employees to love where they work. Give them a tool that shows you value their time and empower everyone to deliver. With an employee engagement platform like Blink, you can turn every employee into a source of competitive advantage.

What is employee engagement?

Try to find the ‘definition of employee engagement’ online and you’ll get a variety of explanations. This often leads to confusion on the true meaning of what employee engagement really is. But in its simplest terms, employee engagement is the relationship between an organization and its employees

Why is employee engagement important?

So many reasons! For starters, engaged employees stick around. Engaged employees are loyal employees, which is especially important when you consider that companies spend thousands of dollars each time they need to replace a worker (as much as 213% of an annual salary in some cases).

Engaged employees are 38% more likely to have above average productivity and even a small increase in engagement can increase profits by $2,400 per employee per year.

Engaged employees also make fewer mistakes. This is largely because they can focus on the work in front of them, which means they can offer better customer service and are less likely to have workplace accidents. In industries like healthcare or transportation, employee engagement can literally mean the difference between life and death.

How can I improve employee engagement?

Employee engagement has a significant impact on performance and productivity (engaged workers contribute 202% more), but employee engagement is about more than worker happiness, streamlined internal comms, and pay and benefits.

That’s because what makes employees more engaged is not necessarily happiness or even satisfaction. The key elements of employee engagement lie in the knowledge that employees have an important role to play in an organization. They can see how their contribution fits in, they feel they have a voice, and they are recognized for what they accomplish.

With that in mind, there are many approaches you can take when brainstorming what employee engagement strategies you’d like to put in place. While improving employee engagement will look different for every business, these ideas can help you get started:

  • Gauge your employees’ feelings and opinions with things like surveys, questionnaires, and feedback
  • Show your employees that you listen; if an issue has been brought to your attention, address it
  • Give employees a voice by facilitating channels where they can give feedback and report any issues
  • Give employees a place where they can show off their work and receive praise
  • Consider that employees have different communication preferences and styles; engaging your introverted employees will likely be different than your extroverted employees

How can I measure employee engagement?

The only way to improve employee engagement is to measure and monitor it. But knowing how to measure employee engagement can be difficult. Digital tools can have a significant impact on how work gets done, but one of the problems with traditional intranet platforms is that the built in analytics simply measure how engaged employees were with the intranet not with the company.

When you use an employee communication app like Blink, you get a variety of analytics options that let you track everything from communications flow to trending topics.

Blink’s workforce analytics can help you measure, monitor, and improve employee engagement by giving you deep insights into your company’s internal communications, coworker relationships, and overall employee sentiment. As a result, you’ll have a distinct edge over your competition.
