Engaged employees understand the organization’s objectives and their role. They are passionate and enthusiastic about their work, have a strong desire to be part of the organization, and are motivated to go above and beyond in their jobs. Aon Hewitt’s Engagement 2.0 Employee Study shed some light into how engagement can translate into better company performance. This study compared key business drivers (innovation, quality of products, customer satisfaction, cost/efficiency, and revenue growth) across employee groups segmented by their engagement levels.
The Aon Hewitt global employee database provides some insight into where the Best Employers are focusing these action planning efforts. The top 10 areas where Best Employers excel in engagement drivers relative to average companies were identified. These differences can be described in four key areas: leadership, employee value proposition, total rewards, and enabling performance. In this white paper, we examine each of these four areas in more detail.
