How Can Universities Increase Employee Engagement in an Era of Increased Workforce Competition?
Employee engagement is not your employee’s satisfaction or happiness. While these are important, employee engagement is actually the emotional commitment the employee has to the organization and its goals. According to a 2017 Gallup Poll, only a third of U.S. employees are actively engaged in their workplace while more than half are disengaged or are looking outside of the organization for work. If employees aren’t engaged, then productivity, morale, innovation, and turnover all take substantial blows, which directly affects the bottom line.
These stakes are exponentially higher in higher education where the success of our future—our students—depends on having engaged faculty and staff.
