If you’re a CEO, do you treat employee engagement as solely the domain of the Human Resources (HR) department? And if you’re an HR professional, do you find yourself trying to persuade your CEO that employee engagement should also be a C-suite concern? SHRM says, “Many company leaders… are not accustomed to thinking about the nuts and bolts of engaging employees, and they probably haven’t considered the impact they can make by taking relatively simple actions.”
As the CEO of Achievers, it’s important to share with other CEOs the value of the employee engagement. I’ve had a firsthand view of the benefits of engaging employees and putting them first. The fact is that employee engagement is a vital force for moving your company forward, but the impact and value of this force won’t be realized unless your entire leadership team (including the C-suite) participates. It’s time for organizations to realize that culture and engagement is not just an HR thing.
