At ElevatePoint, we think employee engagement is everything. When you think of your organization, employee engagement is everything. Increased employee engagement results in higher quality, better customer service, increased safety, more productivity, and ultimately in lower costs (such as in employee turnover) and higher profits.
It’s why we believe all companies should be concerned about increasing employee engagement. It seems in general leaders agree that employee engagement is important, but barely 25% have an employee engagement strategy.
