Building Employee Engagement and Relationships Using Strengths

People who use their strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged on the job. –Gallup Strengths Center

Employee engagement is all about an employee’s commitment to an organization.  It’s about more than a paycheck, but about doing all that is needed to achieve organizational success. 

Focusing on your strengths and those of your employees’ helps increase employee engagement.  When you use your strengths, you are able to perform your best work and are most productive.  According to Gallup data, “employees who simply learn their strengths are 7.8% more productive.  Developing those strengths motivates employees to learn how to best apply themselves and makes them more likely to care whether their activities are profitable.”  Thus, utilizing your strengths increases your engagement and commitment to your organization.
