Research studies show that less than one-third of the workforce is highly engaged. Employee engagement not only impacts your bottom line through higher absenteeism, lower productivity and negativity, but also through the relationships these employees have with your customers and suppliers. Over the past three years employers have focused less attention on engagement strategies and more on fiscal survival. In tough economic times, cost cutting measures hit employees the most through staff reductions, wage freezes or reductions and the elimination of employee incentive programs. This has left the members of organizations feeling over worked and unappreciated. Improving engagement levels by focusing on employees needs is a cost effective way to ignite motivation and regain the commitment of your employees without a huge outlay of funds.

The cost of employee engagement to an organization
Why employee needs are relevant to engagement
The theoretical support to the significance of need as found by Abraham Maslow (1943 - A Theory of Human Motivation)
How needs can build engagement or create disengagement
How to create and implement cost effective engagement strategies that serve employee needs
