Connecting Engagement to the Bottom Line

Still not convinced that employee engagement is the key to success?

As if the evidence wasn’t already overwhelming enough, the numbers keep flooding in connecting employee engagement to the bottom line. Last year, companies with high levels of employee engagement reported an average improvement of 19.2 percent in operating income, while companies with low levels of employee engagement declined an average of 32.7 percent!

So what’s it gonna be—19 percent up, or 32 percent down? The choice is yours.

Don’t think for a minute that you don’t have the budget to make engagement happen. It doesn’t take a massive investment to reap big rewards.

A Work Foundation study showed that organizations that increased practices related to engagement by just 10 percent increased profits by an average of $2,400 per employee per year. And the engaged organizations grew profits as much as three times faster than their competitors.

So what if your leadership isn’t on board? Get going without them. One person can radically change the engagement of an organization. Leadership is not just a position—it is a way of being. Get the ball rolling, then bring your team along. It may save their bonuses, raises and even their jobs.

Remember, engagement is just a decision. DECIDE to be happy where you are—and you will be.

  1. Disgusting from National. This job summit should represent all NZers not just their right wing mates. There should be 50% female, at least 15% Maori & Pacific Islanders and a few chinese thrown in as well. Participants should be across all age categories and representing all religious beliefs. At least 10% should be homosexual and a proportion should be left handed. So long as none are green voters because no one cares what they have to say

  2. Those are some interesting numbers. My question is what do you think is more affective for saving for retirement, an I.R.A. or a 401k account. Both have their perks but they both also have the downside of going up and down with the stock market

  3. Your family is such an encouragement! I know what it’s like to give chemo shots. When my mom was sick I used to give her chemo shots at home…and as a true homeschooling mom she incorporated it into “science class”. Little Precious Abby and your family are in my prayers!
