Being truly engaged at work means you’re inspired to give your best effort, you actually do give 100% effort, you’re as motivated as you’ve ever been, you recommend your organization as a great organization to work for, and you feel like your organization has a positive impact on you. These are the engagement hallmarks of the most successful high performers. And there’s lots you can do to develop them in yourself.
Your company can have the best products and services in the world, but without great employees, you won’t get very far. Employees are the lifeblood of any organization. They can make or break a business. That’s why investing in your employees’ development and tying their individual goals to your overall business objectives is crucial to your company’s success.
