Role of Employee Engagement in Organization Success

Organization success is directly proportional to the amount of effort each employee puts in the system. Employees need to work with sincerity and dedication for their teams to do well which would eventually benefit the organization. Organizations where employees work half heartedly find it extremely difficult to survive the cut throat competition. In today’s business scenario, where competitors are looking for just one opportunity to outshine you, employees need to be on their toes always and strive hard to give more than hundred percent to the organization. Employees with a casual attitude do not contribute much towards the productivity of organization.

Employee engagement refers to a state where employees are not only fully involved in their work but also serious about their career as well as organization. Engaged employees do not treat work as a mere source of burden but enjoy coming to work and also have a positive approach towards organization. Such employees prefer sitting at their workstations and working seriously rather than loitering around and wasting time. For them achieving targets within the deadlines is not their job but passion. They do not work just because their Boss has asked them to do so but because they nurture a dream of making it big in the professional world.

The dedication and seriousness of engaged employees reflect in their work and their output is far more than those who come to office to enjoy and earn money. You do not have to give repeated reminders to such employees and in fact they themselves take the initiative of finishing assignments and submitting the same on or before time.

Employees fully involved in their work seldom have the time to badmouth their organization or participate in office politics. They hardly have any interest in what their competitors are up to and stay away from unproductive activities. Engaged employees contribute to a healthy work culture which eventually lead to success of the organization in the long run. Such employees take pride in representing their organization and always think in its favour. For them, success of their organization matters the most. They not only respect their superiors but also strive hard to fulfil organization’s goals and objectives. Employees who are fully involved in their work think of neither quitting their organization once they are fully trained nor revealing confidential information to competitors. Engaged employees are more or less satisfied with their job and also have a strong faith in their organization and its policies. There are people who get easily carried away by false promises made by competitors and start betraying their own colleagues and superiors. This is in fact the most dangerous thing for an organization. Employees who are happy with their work seldom indulge in such activities and utilize all their energies in doing productive work for the organization.

Employees who are happy with their jobs play a crucial role in creating a positive brand image of their organization. They praise their bosses even behind their backs and also look forward to supporting them and working in unison. Such employees are most of the times self motivated and also encourage others to remain positive and work happily for the organization without cribbing and complaining. Selfish interests need to take a back seat for your organization to do well. Employees who are involved in their work do not have the time to interfere in other’s personal life and avoid getting into unnecessary fights and conflicts. They seldom are a part of activities which would not only earn a bad name for them but also their organization. They are happy when their organization generates revenues and makes profits.
