What is employee engagement?
Employee engagement measures how enthusiastic and dedicated a worker is to their employer’s success. An engaged employee does not come to work for a paycheck; They care about their work and want to make meaningful contributions to the organization they work for.
When employees are fired from their office, they are generally considered useless. Some part of the problem is that they don’t think they are getting fair compensation, but are likely to be disconnected and not worth the workplace.
How to improve employee engagement
