Is Worker Engagement a Mistake?
Worker engagement sounds like a no-brainer. Studies show that engaged workers are more productive, more supportive of leadership, more committed to improving the organization, and less likely to leave. They identify with the company mission, seek to live its values, and serve as ambassadors inside and outside the organization. What’s more, organizations with broad worker engagement tend to outperform other organizations.
This white paper explores three questions that are critical to determining how safety can mobilize employees:
1. Why is it important to understand the difference between worker involvement and Engaged Employees?
2. How can organizations use safety involvement to increase levels of employee engagement?
3. How does cultural maturity impact safety involvement and what is appropriate?
