The more and more employee engagement and business is talked about the more and more it is clear that employee engagement must be addressed right away by companies. The Society of Human Resources has stated that a survey revels that about 70% of employees want to leave their jobs. But why would employees want to leave with all the talk about the economy?
We know that money is not a long term motivator so it is obvious that will not keep people at a compnay. We know that the reason people leave a job is usually becuse of their immediate supervisor or manager. It is also becoming clear that employees do not feel like they matter or are cared about. This makes their value as an employee diminish. What they see, perception, is being asked to do more with less.
Employees need support and attention and this is best done through the frontline manager. Yet often these managers are not given adaquate training. Employee engagement must be addressed, addressed soon, and the frontline managers given the attention they deserve. In this way the employees will get the support they deserve.
