When we talk engagement, we mean the employee who really cares about the work they're doing. It's the employee who's willing to put in the hours, who's committed to the vision, and who deeply cares about the business... maybe even as much as you do.
It's not fluff or fantasy -- the most successful companies have solved the engagement riddle, and their results show.
Chick-Fil-A, the company that hasn't had a down year in its history save one (during the housing recession), also boasts a retention rate 40% higher than its competitors for its full time employees.
Southwest Airlines is no different, often earning a sort of fanfare status by its frequent flyers and even placing as the top airline compared to its major competitors in a recent 2018 report.
The common thread in both these companies? They don't just say they value their employees -- they show they do by rewarding them for their accomplishments.
