Employee engagement has become a focal point in today’s workforce because companies largely know that to keep customers happy, you need to have happy, engaged employees. The recent focus on “quiet quitting” has renewed companies’ attention to employee engagement. According to the Paychex 2023 Pulse of HR report, 75% of HR leaders surveyed listed employee engagement as an area of focus in the coming year.
As the workplace continues to evolve in the post-pandemic world, businesses are increasingly placing value on their employee engagement efforts. Companies with engaged employees may reap the benefits of increased productivity, improved employee retention, and growth. An effective employee engagement strategy lays out the actions needed to encourage employees to take pride and ownership in their work. These strategies should also be linked to the company’s mission and core values.
