Why Spend Money Measuring Workplace Engagement?

No Comments

“I can’t afford to coddle my employees with an expensive survey, it’s hard enough to turn a profit!”

We hear this a lot, especially when times are tough. Yes, it is a new expense. No, it does not need to be “expensive.” The fact is, increasing employee engagement delivers the highest ROI of any investment made to increase business value.

Of all the things a company can do to increase key business success indicators like the customer experience, productivity, retention, profits, and safety targets, none deliver the kind of returns, per dollar spent, than efforts to increase employee engagement.

Data by Gallup, the Conference Board and other highly regarded research organizations around the world demonstrate a truly remarkable increase in business value correlated with engagement. While there are hundreds of things a company or organization can do to improve the bottom-line, none are as cost effective as creating a high performance organizational culture that nurtures, encourages, and supports employee engagement.

But no matter how impressive the research, CEO’s still cling to neoclassical economics and process analytics in order to squeeze out fractional levels of improvement when double digit increases remain untouched because they don’t trust what has been traditionally referred to as the “soft stuff.”

BEST PRACTICE — You can’t afford NOT to know where and why you are hemorrhaging productivity in your organization.  Stop wasting precious HR resources and find out how you can get increases of 20% and more in productivity in the next 6 months without touching salary and benefits.

The following comments are for Engagient's Employee Engagement Seminar for Managers

We were trying to get the buy-in from our Management team, prior to rolling out a new Performance Review Process and move the management style away from the industrial age style in an attempt to get our employees more engaged.  For the last 45 years we have been working under the old world style of management and old habits die hard.  The Engagient seminar on Employee Engagement was exactly what we were looking to install at Perfect Plastic Printing.

Don presented the information with a passion and energy that impacted every participant.  The information presented represented the results of research and science as opposed to just one more consultant’s opinion.  This made the buy-in so much easier.  The combination of instruction and small group exercises kept the class from getting tired and kept the information geared more toward our business as opposed to generalizing information.  Don was extremely knowledgeable on the subject and this was apparent when he answered participant questions.  He kept the conversations light and humorous, but had you believing that getting your employees more engaged is crucial to surviving in business today.  The feedback from the Management team on the seminar was all positive. Don was one of the best presenters that we have experienced at Perfect Plastic Printing.
