A recent study by the Gallup Group involving thousands of participants revealed that up to 71% of your workforce are not engaged in the success of your business. Your investment in human capital can make or break your business, as employee engagement affects an employee’s involvement with, commitment to, and personal satisfaction with their work. Employee engagement is an important factor in employee retention as well.
A business can increase profits by moving people from disengaged to engaged, or by firing disengaged employees and bringing in new employees and actively engaging them.
