Why Employee Engagement Really Does Matter

There are two big problems companies are facing today. One is profitability and the other is employee engagement (and productivity). These two things go hand in hand.

When your employees are engaged, they are more motivated, productive and produce better work. This leads to better profitability over time.

Employees Want Spontaneous Rewards

47% of employees want to receive rewards spontaneously. Everyone wants to be praised, but more than that they want to be recognized when they do something well. It’s very important that these rewards are spontaneous or happen right after the good deed for it to leave a lasting impact. 

38% of employees want to receive rewards in exchange for good work. Who doesn’t? Remember that good work comes in all shapes and sizes and recognizing good work can go a long way in attitude, morale, and productivity.

Rewarding in the Workplace vs. Rewarding at Home

52% of employees prefer to celebrate rewards with their families rather than their colleagues. Team parties or company celebrations and awards are wonderful. Next time you’re giving rewards to your employees at the office, supplement it with a gift selection they can take home. 

We’re all human and our loved ones motivate us more than anything. Sharing achievements and rewards at home makes a big difference to employees. 

How to Manage Employee Engagement for Effective Results 

Employee engagement can be a job in itself and many offices have coordinators, committees, or personnel responsible for overseeing this. But it can be very hard to maintain an effective and ongoing culture of impactful engagement. 85% of HR leaders say an employee recognition program helps to improve employee engagement. 

We work very closely with Human Resources to shape and implement recognition programs and we find this to be the consensus among leaders. 89% of HR executives feel recognition programs are improving the employee experience. The professionals who deal with employees everyday back the effectiveness of these recognition programs.

Lack of Recognition Leads to Turnover 

27% of employees said that a lack of recognition was their top reason for leaving a job. If an employee doesn’t feel that they are being appropriately recognized for that work, it can lead to unhappiness in their position. This is especially impactful when you realize you can lose staff that’s doing good work over a lack of recognition. 

Thinking of the bottom line, there is a high cost associated with onboarding, training, and retaining employees. Compared to the cost of recognition programs and employee engagement tactics, it’s a no brainer – you will have cost savings. 

Embrace Engagement and Grow Your Employee Culture 

These employee recognition, incentive, and award programs are an effective way to increase engagement in your company. The HR professionals working with employees every day have seen this work. It will lead to more retention, cost savings, improved morale, and a thriving culture.

How Loyalty Programs Surpass Discounts At GLS Group, we specialize in helping employers and companies engage with their customers in order to retain them, attract new customers, and grow sales. A very common way many companies do this is with discounts. While there are many benefits of discounts, there are also multiple drawbacks.

They are often used to entice new clients, for engagement, retention, to win back an old client, or to increase sales. However, there are a lot of pitfalls in using discounts. Why Discounts Hurt More Than They Help After so many discounts or coupons from the same company, the customers begin to expect them rather than think of them as a special treat. After a while, how often will these customers go shopping at this store without the coupon? Especially when they know that if they hold out a few days, there will be a new coupon in the mail.
