Every year companies are assessed on their workplace cultures and trust index ranks as they vie for the top spots among the country’s best employers and as great workplaces. This year, we have long-time contender – Google – on top again (for the seventh time), followed by the likes of Goldman Sachs and Hilton, as ranked among the best employers in America. Every year, only a handful of companies were recognized for the greatness of their workplace cultures and employee engagement.
These exemplary companies and their employee engagement activities have over-delivered on value to employees. We’re going to deconstruct some of their best practices to understand why they’re loved by their employees. Check them out to see if your company can take a leaf out of their book and aspire to provide similar offerings.
Not every company may aspire to be ranked among the top employers in the country, but no company can hope to achieve great results with disengaged employees either.
According to a Gallup survey in May, after a strong start to 2016, which has maintained the monthly averages in 2016 above 32.5% at all times, employee engagement stands at 32.7%, while 50.9% of employees were “not engaged” and 16.4% were “actively disengaged.”
If you’re an employer, now’s the time to wake up and start undertaking employee engagement activities that can stoke your employees’ enthusiasm and commitment to the workplace.
The importance of engaging employees cannot be questioned because engaged employees drive the innovation, growth and revenue that their companies need. Employee engagement guarantees the achievement of business outcomes essential to any organization including productivity, profitability and customer engagement.
