Going Beyond Employee Engagement

4 happy people are jumping in the air

If you are the kind of smart and savvy leader who has been convinced that employee engagement training matters in terms of productivity, work quality and ability to collaborate, why not go one step further…go for employee passion.

What we’re hearing these days is that employee engagement is not just a nice-to-have, it is absolutely necessary to compete effectively in today’s marketplace. Without high levels of employee engagement, morale sinks, employees no longer care about the quality of their work and they put in only the minimum effort. On the other hand, if you can harness employee passion, the needle moves significantly upward. For your organization to really thrive, you not only want customers who are passionately loyal to your company and brand, you want employees who reinforce that passion and loyalty through increased levels of advocacy, discretionary effort and intent to stay.

Here’s what can happen if employees passionately believe in what you do as a company and honestly look forward to coming to work:

  1. Attracting and retaining “A” players becomes easier.
    Think about it. If you have employees who really love their job, they will attract others who want to work with you. Your positive corporate culture is a magnet for employees who sincerely want to contribute to your company’s success. Engaged and aligned employees will believe in your purpose and commit wholeheartedly to helping you achieve the company’s vision and mission. Your high performing work culture is a strategic advantage in recruiting the best of the best and supports an environment where employees are deeply committed to their job.
  2. The good word spreads.
    Even more than before, word-of-mouth endorsements bring customers to your door. Online marketing with customer comments has a powerful influence on new customers who are in research mode. They pay attention to how people talk about your company, and they are persuaded by comments from delighted customers. In the same way, passionate employees become your brand ambassadors. Customers listen to workers who excitedly talk about how much they love what they do.
  3. Passionate employees will not be tempted to leave.
    Your positive corporate culture becomes your #1 retention tool. There’s no way your powerful culture can be undercut by competitors who can’t match it. Money can’t buy loyalty. If your employees are happy where they are, they are not as open to other offers…even at larger salaries. A happy workforce is your security against a talent drain.

It’s not easy to create this kind of enthusiasm. But it should be your goal. Simple employee engagement is not enough. Passionate and aligned engagement is what you should strive for.

We consider LSA Global our outsourced learning and development partner. We worked closely with LSA to customize a management development program to meet our growing business needs. I would highly recommend LSA to any company wanting to deliver quality learning solutions.

What a refreshing change from the half-baked psycho-babble you normally get from training and consulting organizations. LSA gives you the practical and results-oriented assistance you need to define and reach your goal.  They provide a results driven plan – not just a temporary fix. They are great to work with, and even more importantly, they “get it!”

David Fiano
Vice President Human Resources

We engaged LSA to design and deliver a 6-month custom executive coaching program for a group of our key leaders. The focus of the program was to help a core group of senior leaders to leverage previous investments in management training, to ensure the engagement and retention of key employees, and to push critical strategic initiatives forward. Even with the high expectations of our senior people, LSA has completely exceeded our expectations. I would recommend them to anyone looking to create and implement a custom coaching methodology using proven tools to drive true change.

We signed up with LSA early on–as their 22nd Member! Since then, our organization’s learning needs have increased and decreased and increased again with the changing times. The beauty of the LSA business model is its flexibility…when we needed to supplement our own internal resources, we used LSA services knowing that we could depend on the outstanding quality of the leadership development and management training programs they provide.
