An organization is only as good as the people that comprise it. In order to retain the highest caliber employees, you need to keep your team motivated, involved, and engaged. Feeling enthusiastic about one's work leads to personal satisfaction, as well as improved performance which benefits the organization on a whole.

While most human resources departments can tell you that, the tough part is figuring out strategies to maintain that strong level of engagement.

Engagement Levels of US Workers

According to a Gallup poll, less than 31.5% of US workers reported feeling engaged in their jobs in 2014. A full 51%, considered themselves "not engaged" and 17.5% claimed to be "actively disengaged".

When more than half of workers feeling not engaged, it's clear that employers need to place greater emphasis on improving workplace culture and involvement strategies. The simple solution? Consistent communication and powerful collaboration.
