Engaged Employee, Strong AssetSeptember 29th, 2009
First, consider what it means to be an engaged employee: involved, occupied, committed, meshed, participating.
The most significant definition for me is “unavailable to anyone else” – as in other employers. When a person is fully engaged in their work, their energy and focus is a laser directed on outcome and satisfaction. Think of an engaged couple and how they begin planning their life and setting goals – pursuing dreams. Results become rewards, producing a euphoric feeling of high self-esteem, control over one’s destiny, and approval from others. Similarly, engaged workers also feel the grass is greener on their side. They become a company’s strongest asset, one that cannot be stolen.
