Employee Engagement = Business Success, but Only If We Turn Strategies into Action

We all know engaged employees are happier, but how exactly does happiness impact a company’s bottom line? We set out to answer this question in our current collaboration with Lighthouse Research and Advisory, a human capital research and advisory services firm focused on talent and learning technology, strategy and innovation.

We surveyed HR executives, many from the HCI community, on how business performance is affected by three things: organizational culture, employee performance practices and engagement strategies.

With the survey complete, it’s now up to HR pros to turn the findings into action. But where and how do you start? While the numbers are valuable, they mean very little if there’s not a clear way to take advantage of the strategies that have proven to be successful. For example, the survey found high-performing companies are 26% more likely to use peer feedback. So now you have that data, what’s next?

We’ve invited principal analyst Ben Eubanks and Autumn Spehar, a HR leader from Stout, to not only unveil the findings from the study in an upcoming webinar, but to also talk through a playbook for how HR pros can actually use data to drive action. During the webinar, Cause & Effect: The Relationship Between Employee Performance and Business Success, Ben will talk through the statistics while Autumn will talk about the practices that have the biggest impact on business success.

We hope you’ll join us for our webinar on Oct. 4 as we go behind the numbers of the 2017 Lighthouse Research Performance Management and Business Results. Registrants will also receive a complimentary copy of the report.
