How To Encourage Employee Involvement In Business Achievements

Even when an area has an impressive employment rate, it can be difficult to get those employees engaged in their jobs. While the employment in Shasta County grew by 2.33% between 2015 and 2016, and that growth is no small accomplishment, the actual engagement of employees at their jobs is harder to measure. Worldwide research has estimated that just 13% of employees are engaged while at work, with 33% of United States residents feel engaged at work. Learn these strategies and you can better engage your employees and promote entrepreneurial development at the same time.
