Employee Engagement #Infographic #Engagement #Management

Employee Engagement is the most important business buzzword in 2016. More and more companies are making the experience that there is a real connection between happiness and benefit, employee satisfaction and profitability. Whereas the position of the “Feel Good Manager” suffers from a bad reputation from both employees and employers, the term “Employee Engagement” is so much more than just party, smiling employees, casual Fridays and other empty words.

The question is: Does this approach pay off at all? Is it recommended to invest time and money to raise employee engagement?

Over the past year, MyHub intranet blogged about many aspects of employee engagement. This infographic pulls together some statistics showing that employee engagement has a direct impact on service, sales, quality, safety, retention, profits and total shareholder returns. The decision to be engaged is made in workers hearts, not in their minds. Disengaged employees are, definitely, bad for business.

So the answer is: Yes
