Employee engagement is more relevant than ever. With millennials choosing their workplace based largely on corporate social responsibility and employee turnover on the rise, the importance of employee engagement cannot be overstated.
Research clearly shows that when employee engagement is high, organisations prosper. Higher levels of employee engagement correspond with better performance and productivity, more customer satisfaction and lower rates of absence through sickness, therefore having an engaged workforce is essential for growth and survival.
While most executives do see a clear need to increase employee engagement, many have yet to develop ways to measure and tackle this goal. Our Jump program makes it easy for companies to improve levels of employee engagement and therefore, their business.
