blog-post-productivity-image-01

Did you know employee engagement has been a hot topic in the business world for quite some time now? That’s because it’s the key to unlocking the door to enormous success, for you and your private practice!

Think about it. A disengaged workforce that has no passion or trust for a company can lead to increased absenteeism, presenteeism, and staff turnover - all of which are costly to your business. But when you have employees who are engaged and genuinely passionate about their work, they are more likely to be productive, motivated, and committed to their job.

Here are 4 reasons why employee engagement can benefit workplace productivity:

1. Engaged employees are better at their jobs

When your employees feel heard and recognized for their hard work, they are more likely to be motivated to do their job well and go above and beyond the call of duty, paired with a positive attitude. They take pride in their work because they are committed to you and the company mission. No longer are their jobs simply a way to bring home the bacon. When they are 1000% dedicated to their roles, they are more likely to see their jobs as part of their passion for life. When this happens on a larger scale, businesses with high levels of employee engagement tend to experience lower levels of absenteeism and presenteeism.

2. Engaged employees who like their jobs are less likely to leave 

Business owners like you often face the challenge of high employee turnover. In addition to the costs associated with recruitment and training, employee turnover can also lead to a loss of productivity and morale. But when employees feel valued and respected, they are more likely to be engaged in their work and less likely to look for new opportunities. Therefore, you end up with a workforce that knows the ins and outs of your company and can lead the way in making sure the company runs like a well-oiled machine. 

3. Happy employees make for happy clients. 

Happy customers are the key to a successful business. But did you know engaged employees are critical for achieving this? They are more likely to provide high-quality customer service and go above and beyond for customers.  In turn, customers are more likely to be satisfied with their experience and return in the future. This creates a virtuous circle in which your employees can lead to satisfied customers, which then help to create a more engaged workforce. 

4. Innovation takes a seat at the table

In today's business climate, the importance of innovation cannot be understated. In order to stay ahead of the competition, you need to find ways to improve your processes and increase efficiency. When you have engaged employees, they are more likely to generate new ideas that can help achieve these goals, simply because they are able to see gaps and solutions you can’t. By encouraging your employees to share their ideas and give them a platform to do so, you can create an environment that is conducive to innovation. As you allow innovation to take effect, your business will evolve quicker to meet the needs of your company, your workforce and your customers. All of this together allows for a bigger and brighter future for all.

 

As you can see, employee engagement is beneficial for you and your workforce. When you take the time to create the kind of environment where your team can thrive and grow along with your business, you will create a culture that is more productive, motivated, and dedicated to your company mission. Additionally, you stand to positively impact customer satisfaction levels. The more you invest in employee engagement for your business, the greater of a return you will see in your business.
