Employees are the spine of any business organization. Hence, in order to remain strong in an industry, employees have to be kept pleased and happy.
All Employees want is taxing challenging work, proper recognition, due respect, unconditional support in difficult times, opportunities for personal growth and advancement and most importantly they want to be treated as human beings.
This is not too much they are asking for. Is it?
• Firstly, mind this that your employees are your most valuable asset – you can’t take them for granted or treat them poorly.
• They are also your best and foremost brand ambassadors. Your employees will end up treating customers the same way you treat them.
• If your Employees have been pushed to the point where they no longer bother or care, will never go that extra mile. They will also not take any initiative to solve problems.
• Your Employees are the heart beat of your organization. And wonder what will happen if the heart stops beating...?

Let’s sit down with a few executives and CEOs, and ask them questions about their employee’s engagement with their work. The question be like:
• Is your workforce physically and emotionally committed to the organization and its goals?
• Do they literally understand how their contributed work results in consequential outcomes?
• Do they come to work every day with a defined passion, purpose, presence, and energy ?
To arrive at the point where work becomes its own reward, firstly leaders will need to practice deep strong listening.
They need to undertake employee engagement on an individual basis. They need to craft teams that will challenge and bring out the best in each team member.
Thus you can say that, engagement is not just an HR issue, but it is a leadership issue.
