Employee engagement and involvement is a management philosophy that engages employees' contribution in continuously improving business practices and processes. One thing for sure is that management of all types competing in various industries agrees that employee engagement can provide a competitive advantage for a company. This philosophy is embraced because of past experience of management and theorists and in their study and observation of the benefits of engagement. If one were to research studies on engagement and productivity, it would be clear that engaged employees are often more productive. Not only are they more productive, they will most likely remain with the company for a longer period of time, they will allow themselves to be vulnerable enough to trust management and the organization, morale is usually higher, and they are more creative and willing to offer ideas to improve business processes and practices. Positive engagement of this type contributes immensely to business outcomes and the bottom-line.
