When employees feel good about what they do, productivity goes up, deliverables are met, and customer service improves. But, how long will employees stay focused and committed to your company if they are not learning, developing, and growing? In order for companies to take the current manager-employee relationship to the next level, they must transition their workforce from being engaged to being enabled.
Employee engagement is both the rational and the emotional connection an employee has to your organization, combined with their willingness to unleash their discretionary energy and effort for your cause. In other words, they are intrinsically motivated to do their best work. Research has consistently found that more engaged employees produce significantly better business results for their organizations.
