Create Amazing Employee Experiences through Purposeful Employee Engagement

Employee engagement is the care and level of emotional commitment that an employee has to their organization and their work. When employees are satisfied with their company, they are more productive, experience less burnout, and are less likely to leave the company. If a business has a high employee satisfaction rate, it will be more successful in the long term.

 Let’s start with the pyramids or the premise of a pyramid. There is an old adage, if you tell a secret to someone, they will tell someone else, who will tell 2 more who will each tell 2 more, and before you know it everyone knows about the secret. Worse what you told the first person and what the last people were told will not be the same. The secret will grow legs and turn into some monster that is so far from the truth that it becomes out of control. This is the “pyramid principle” of communication.
