We spend such a large amount of our time at work that to do so in a role that doesn't spark any enthusiasm is a colossal waste of human potential. When we are engaged in our work, it enhances our sense of our well-being and is a positive force in our lives. Managing employee engagement has become an important part of the HR function and is rising up the agenda of many board rooms. Still, many business owners do not know how to start measuring employee engagement.

We've all likely been in a situation where we've been involved with or worked for an organisation that has a core value statement posted in a prominent spot, but employees don’t truly understand, care or even feel connected to that statement. Or, perhaps you've been involved with or worked with a company that has no idea where its core values lie, and therefore, things are akin to organised chaos on a daily basis.
Corporate core values are the important characteristics of a business that are demonstrated constantly through every interaction the company’s employees make with the outside world. Often whittled down to four or five individual words or terms, these strengths or priorities are the things that employees use to set their behaviour and approach when doing their day to day job.
Employee engagement is a term banded around a lot with countless experts and businesses sharing advice on how to improve things. StaffCircle included. Better communication internally can make a huge difference in aligning your employees with a common purpose and making them feel valued. However, from our recent research, perks and benefits are just as important. And we’ve built an infographic to show you.
When looking for a definition of employee employment, we think the best place to turn is to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
It’s not the easiest task to ensure good employee engagement across a large workforce spanning many different locations and working environments. Your staff will value different things, face different challenges and require varying amounts of information and communication. How do you ensure you’re giving everyone the support, tools, rewards and info that are going to make them happy and loyal employees for ever more?
There's been a shift taking place in workplaces around the globe. The shift is one that places emphasis on the concept of employee engagement. While the shift and emphasis have taken place and continue to gain momentum, it still can be complicated to define, difficult to measure and even more elusive to succeed at.
Poor employee engagement is costly – not just in terms of high staff turnover and recruitment fees, but also because of the impact it has on a business’s output quality and quantity.
