Lack of employee engagement is killing your business’s profitability. It sounds harsh, but it’s the truth. Don’t believe it? Take a look at the statistics.
Gallup’s 2013 report on the state of the American workforce showed that companies with highly engaged employees had 22% higher profitability, 28% less theft, 48% fewer safety incidents, and 10% higher ratings from their customers. Those averages were even higher when looking at just Millennial workers. Additionally, when employees are engaged, they’re three times less likely to leave your company. This is another area where engagement will save money for your company. On average, it costs over $4000 to hire a new employee.
Recognition plays a huge part in employee engagement. 74% of employees who receive daily recognition reported being very engaged in their jobs. The more often an employee receives recognition, the higher the level of engagement reported. The question is, what is the best way to engage your employees?
Engage With Incentives
One of the best, easiest, and most cost-effective ways you can engage your workforce is through incentive programs. A 2016 study by DCRStrategies reported that 79% of companies that have used employee incentive programs say that their incentive program resulted in achieving their established goals. Whether it’s an employee health and wellness incentive program, an employee appreciation program, or a channel sales incentive program, incentives, and rewards are key to increasing engagement.
The best incentive plans include strong supporting technology, demographic-specific rewards, and a dedicated managing team. You need rewards and recognition that will surprise and delight your participants. Make your participants feel special and make sure your incentive program is personalized and user-friendly. Remember that your participants need to feel like they are important and valued, otherwise you risk having your incentive program come across as just another corporate gimmick.
