employee engagement is the individual employee’s relationship to their
manger. Is their manager supportive, an effective coach, honest and
represents the high ethical values of the organization? A manager that
embodies these key elements will be a partner with the employee and secure
how the company operates and the strategy for the future will allow the
employee to become more engaged in the success of the organization by
understanding where the company wants to be in the future. Effective
communication includes sharing the business plan and strategy, new products,
financial performance and the vision for the future.
Job Satisfaction: When employees at different levels in the
organization enjoy the job and view their role at the company as challenging
