Employee engagement is one of the most important aspects of HR. First, engaged employees are more productive. They’re more likely to put forth an extra effort and be creative in their work. Second, engaged employees are more satisfied with their work. They feel like they’re doing something meaningful and they’re more likely to stick with their jobs. Finally, engaged employees are less likely to leave their jobs. They’re more loyal to their companies and they don’t want to start over at a new company. HR professionals must take steps to improve employee engagement. By doing so, they can create a more productive, satisfied, and loyal workforce.
