And when some things go up, other things must go down- typically:
The remarkable thing about increasing the levels of engagement amongst your employees is that it yields real results without programmes focussed on making improvements in specific areas, instead these improvements will happen organically all at the same time.
The issue is that many business leaders and executive teams are stretched very thinly on time and effort, although they want to make changes, they can’t do everything all at once. So we must focus our time and push for those things that will create the best results with minimum effort.
Employee engagement is the tide that lifts all boats within the organisation. In fact when you look at the increase in business value that occurs when the CEO and senior leadership team focus on employee engagement, you quickly discover that there is no other single business issue that an organisation could focus on that will deliver a higher return at a lower cost.
