Employee Morale Linked to Corporate Profit

See Article on CPA TrendlinesBy uncovering and quantifying the link between employee engagement and corporate performance, Hewitt makes the case for the need to focus on employee morale and involvement.  Wonderful!  But, then one must ask the question, "How do we increase engagement?"

Lack of engagement is just a symptom of a lack of purpose.  When people don't feel that their destiny is linked to the corporation's destiny, they will always disengage.

When the link is restored between corporate and personal destiny, engagement will return as a natural result.  Of course, doing this requires the time and effort inherent in any, significant, organizational change management activity.

And, it requires a lot of heart.

If a person's destiny doesn't match the companies destiny, that should mean the company should take action to either unite both destinies or terminate the employee. If a person has a lack of purpose in a company it would seem they are not a useful asset. Therefore it would be in the best interest of the company and the employee to end their professional relationship. However, if this "lack of purpose" was causes by an employees lack of work on a personal level, some sort of incentive program seems it could be a vital resource to motivate and further engage employees.

Thank you for your comment, Kyle. I'm suggesting that the best incentive is alignment. JP
