Employee engagement has been a buzz phrase in corporate circles for several years particularly among HR professionals. Dozens of studies have shown that employees who enjoy their work environment, feel appreciated and develop personal ties to the company or product deliver better results. In fact, benchmarking studies conducted by Gallup Consulting in 2010 revealed that when companies achieve best-in-class standards for employee engagement, they see an average increase of 3.9 times the earnings per share as compared to that of their peers.
