Why do today’s companies need to focus on employee engagement? Why should employee performance and engagement be equally as important as your company’s financials?
According to Wikipedia, an “engaged employee” is defined as one who is fully absorbed by and enthusiastic about their work and so takes positive action to further the organization’s reputation and interests.

Decrease or interruption in employee productivity that negatively impacts your services, clients, vendors and bottom line.
