Employee Engagement Creates Mutually Beneficial Relationships

Businesses across the world are seeking ways to establish relationships—with their employees. Whether or not an employee is engaged in their work, the company, and their results has a direct result on their success and the company’s profit margin. 
A Gallup poll showed that just 29 percent of American employees felt they were engaged at work and worldwide only 13 percent felt engaged. Such low levels of engagement not only diminish the level of productivity, but it also affects the level of happiness, accountability, and turnover in employees.
Why? Engaged employees feel a connection with their company. They feel valued and committed to not only do their job, but to do it well. Those who are engaged report high levels of job satisfaction.
Two key factors that affect an employee’s level of engagement are motivation and stress. The more motivated a person is, the more engaged they will be. The more stressed an individual feels, the more disengaged they will be. Both of these factors are affected by the thoughts and perceptions in a person’s subconscious mind.
If an employee has negative beliefs about their abilities, they will lack motivation. It is also true that employees with low self-esteem and confidence are less motivated to do more than necessary and foster healthy working relationships. By changing their negative thoughts to positive ones, these employees can increase their confidence, boost their self-esteem, and uncover the motivators that will enhance their value and happiness in the workplace.
Change the way you think, and you can change the workplace. Use relaxation techniques to reduce stress and increase energy and motivation. Use affirmations to replace doubt with belief to improve performance and build confidence. Take advantage of the power of the subconscious mind to replace negative attitudes with positive thoughts, which in turn will begin to create the positive results you’re seeking. When you perceive your role in a positive light, you’ll become vested in and connected to your company and will become valuable in its success.
Managers also can play a pivotal role in employee engagement and motivation by fostering an environment that rewards employees for their input, feedback, and performance. Providing employees with opportunities to reduce stress and create balance in their lives will greatly enhance engagement in the workplace.
When employee engagement improves, so does job performance and satisfaction, retention, and the bottom line. It creates a mutually beneficial relationship between companies and their employees that is rewarding for all.
