Employee Engagement: Wise Words

We’ve done some digging to see what some of the organizations who do employee engagement right have to say. The likes of Sir Richard Branson definitely have sage advice on creating an energized and excited team of people. While there a lot of different ways to do it, leaders the world over agree that a well thought-out employee engagement strategy does the trick.

Check out a few of our favorite quotes from leaders of diverse corporate backgrounds on how to create a thriving culture of employee engagement:

You shouldn’t be looking for people slipping up, you should be looking for all the good things people do and praising those

Sir Richard Branson

Appreciate everything your associates do for the business. Nothing else can quite substitute for a few well-chosen, well-timed, sincere words of praise. They’re absolutely free and worth a fortune.

Sam Walton

Highly engaged employees make the customer experience. Disengaged employees break it.

Timothy R. ClarkThe 5 Ways That Highly Engaged Employees Are Different

There are only three measurements that tell you nearly everything you need to know about your organization’s overall performance: employee engagement, customer satisfaction, and cash flow.

Jack Welch

Research indicates that workers have three prime needs: Interesting work, recognition for doing a good job, and being let in on things that are going on in the company.

Zig Ziglar

The way your employees feel is the way your customers will feel. And if your employees don’t feel valued, neither will your customers.

Sybil F. StershicAuthor of “Taking Care of the People Who Matter Most: A Guide to Employee-Customer Care”

Remember, you don’t have to be a jet-setting billionaire to inspire your team. The best way to get your team excited and show them how much they’re valued is to be generous with your praise, communicate often and open up the door for your whole team to get in on the fun. Not only will you see more smiles around the office, but you’ll likely experience positive results for your business as well!
