Employee engagement: a modern myth?

According to the 2013 Gallup Global Workplace survey, only 9% of employees in South Africa are actively engaged. Engaged staff will lead to higher productivity and success in the workplace.

Do you know how engaged your staff are?

For most companies, the task of engaging employees may sound complicated, expensive and time-consuming. However, according to Gallup CEO Jim Clifton, employee engagement can be a relatively straightforward issue. Humans naturally want to make a meaningful contribution, develop their skills, and feel valued. If these needs are met, then employee engagement will naturally follow (Accountancy SA, May 2015).

As Howard Thomas, an influential African American author and philosopher, said: “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do it, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

Why not do a survey to find out what makes your employees come alive?
