Why should you care about employee engagement? Does it even matter?


by Vandana Sharma

 

Employee engagement is the emotional connect an employee has with his organisation. A higher engagement signifies a direct connect with organisational goals and collective synergies of the entire organisation to achieve them.

 

Since the era of Industrial revolution, the idea of going to jobs was to earn a livelihood, run your household, pay for utilities, send kids to a good school and manage a decent living. This was also the understanding of the capitalist world which continued to pay the required, mandated wages to ensure workers stick to jobs, supervisors manage them well and corporations grow profitable.

With the evolution of industries, times and people practices, work place happiness has started to count as much as happiness at homes or people lives. Reasons are obvious. An average grown up working adult ends up spending a minimum of 8-9 hours of productive time daily at his workplace

in an approx. career span of 25 years or so.

 

When one invests so much of time and effort working hard for a livelihood and the organisation he / she works for, why should they not seek happiness being there?

It is a simple question that all employers should be able to answer. Afterall, it is the consolidated effort that takes to build a great profitable empire.

 

Having worked with diverse set of people and sectors, I notice distinctly different viewpoints across the sectors. The outlook seems very culturally influenced by the nature of industries even if education and values gathered in business schools were similar.

Old economies:

Industries like commodity training a

nd manufacturing which are workmen driven still believe in the top down hierarchical e practices. They believe an employee needs to cover his basic needs and that's where an employer-employ

ee relation primarily ends. The rest is for corporations to decide whether they want to engage in welfare, or environmental factors. Possibly it works for them too. The engagement initiatives hover around hygiene, entertainment and welfare measures for staff and ways of managing their people practices.

New economies:

It does not hold good for the other extreme, which is the tech led innovative creative world new age set up primarily run by Millenials who are considered the "entitled generation". They are entrepreneurial, not really driven by processes or norms. To keep them at a workplace and get them to unleash their ultimate potential, it needs a lot more than the pay cheque at the end of the month.
