What is the ROI of employee engagement?

The ROI of employee engagement is significant. Businesses with a high number of engaged employees are 17% more productive and 21% more profitable. By investing in employee engagement programs, companies can create a culture of appreciation, increase employee satisfaction, and ultimately improve their bottom line. 

How does employee engagement affect the bottom line?

Engaged employees are more productive, innovative, motivated, loyal, and committed to their work. When employees feel appreciated and recognized, they are more likely to go above and beyond to deliver exceptional results. By investing in employee engagement, companies can lower turnover rates and reduce the cost of recruitment and training. Ultimately, employee engagement is the glue that holds a productive workforce together.
