Janet’s goal as an HR professional is to bridge the gap between the company and its team members. This requires a deep understanding of a company’s objectives while helping to maximize team members’ talents in order to help achieve them. Janet gets the opportunity to directly impact the company’s greatest assets- the people. This is more than a job; it is her passion.
Employee engagement is a crucial aspect of any organization’s success. It refers to the level of commitment and enthusiasm employees have towards their work and the company they work for. It’s important for employers to prioritize employee engagement because it leads to higher productivity, improved job satisfaction, and increased employee retention rates.
A lack of engagement can result in low morale, reduced productivity, and higher turnover rates. Thus, making employee engagement a priority can significantly impact an organization’s overall success and growth. We welcome Janet Baildon from The Radco Companies, and she helps us delve into why employee engagement needs to be more than just a buzzword it needs to be a company culture.
We focused on these three key aspects of employee engagement:

In conclusion, prioritizing employee engagement is crucial for any organization that wants to succeed in the long run. By creating a positive and engaging work environment, companies can not only improve productivity and job satisfaction but also reduce turnover rates and save on recruitment costs.
Employers should aim to foster open communication, provide opportunities for growth and development, recognize and reward good performance, and promote a healthy work-life balance to keep employees engaged and motivated. By prioritizing employee engagement, organizations can create a culture of trust, loyalty, and commitment, ultimately leading to greater success and growth for the business.
