The term employee engagement refers to the psychological commitment a worker feels to their work, team, and organization, but too many employers think that engagement is the responsibility of the employee. This is not true. Employee engagement is an experience created by the organization itself through powerful, dynamic leadership and bonds between team members. But creating this situation is not easy. It takes intention and investment to provide employees with what they need to be successful and establishing managers who can help clear the roadblocks in their way. However, highly engaged teams are a strategic advantage. Organizations with engaged employees are more profitable, more productive, have lower turnover rates, and improved customer loyalty. To get there, understand that engagement is not the default position. Most organizations fail to engage most of their employees. To change the trend, it takes active involvement.
