Employee Engagement: 5 Key Benefits of a More Engaged Workforce

Benefits of Engaged Employees

Employers prize engaged employees—and for good reasons.

Engaged employees are enthusiastic about their work and happy to work for the company. They believe in the company’s mission and embrace its values. Most of all, they value their jobs and contribute to the success of the organization.

Benefits of Engaged Employees

High levels of employee engagement are beneficial for both your company and your workforce, positively impacting your organization in the following ways:

Increased Profitability

When comparing employee engagement levels, Gallup reported that businesses in the top quartile of engagement realized 23% higher profitability than those in the bottom quartile—and earnings-per-share growth that is more than four times that of their competitors.

Higher Retention

Employees who care about their work, their colleagues, and the company are more committed to staying—reducing voluntary turnover. By focusing on employee engagement, you can build a more invested workforce, ensure employees stick around longer, and minimize turnover costs.

Greater Performance

Highly engaged employees put more discretionary effort into their work, increasing productivity. They are also more likely to take ownership of their work and seek ways to improve their performance.

Improved Health

Engaged employees are less likely to experience health issues ranging from physical pain to depression. On average, they report 1.25 “unhealthy” days per month, compared with actively disengaged employees, who report 2.17 unhealthy days.

Better Reputation

When employees enjoy their work and believe in the company’s goals and values, they often speak well of the organization. As brand ambassadors, they’ll be more likely to share company content on social media, refer their friends, and leave positive reviews. Your employees are your best advertisements and a great way to build your company’s reputation.
