In a nutshell:
Highly engaged employees are strong advocates for any business.
For this level of engagement, the military style management processes and systems, prevalent in the UK, must be dropped in favour of management by mutual consent. Where people work, because there are both financial and non-financial benefits.
How is this achieved?
By ensuring that every employee is valued, with their own aspirations embodied into the goals and objectives agreed with them.
Because highly engaged employees are enthusiatic about what they do, and enthusiasm is contagious. People respond positively to enthusiasm, and this can translate into more business.
Only a few percent of businesses in the UK have written business plans, yet research carried out recently by Gail Matthews of Dominican University shows clearly that having written goals improves the chances of achieving them.
