ArticlesAugust 2, 2017
Engaged employees have some key traits:
“ Every Employee should be able to pitch ideas, be taken seriously, and bring their creativity to life”
- are enthusiastic and energetic – they go the extra mile
- care about what they do and have a sense of purpose in their work
- have positive attitudes towards the organization and its values
- feel valued for their contributions
In highly engaged organizations, leaders are more visible and have a high level of personal engagement. They act as role models by demonstrating organizational values and they build relationships at all levels. As a result, employees feel informed, valued, and respected and come to share their leaders’ passion and commitment to success.
“Organizations with high engagement are 78% more productive and 40% more profitable than those organizations with low levels of engagement” Hewitt Quarterly 2008
