From The Publisher:
You don't need to see any metrics to know whether your employees are engaged. You can feel it the moment you walk into your office, your store, or your worksite. Eventually, a general malaise and complacency can creep into your bottom line through slower time-to-market, lower productivity, rising absenteeism, and even increased accidents. But every organization that is willing to make a commitment can turn it around. When you build—and sustain—a culture of high engagement, you'll create the strongest competitive advantage you have.
Full employee engagement represents an alignment of maximum satisfaction for the individual with maximum contribution for the organization.
