In human resources (HR), employee engagement is the emotional connection an employee experiences that results in his willingness to expend discretionary effort at work.
Organizations with high levels of employee engagement are thought to be more profitable and have higher customer satisfaction ratings than organizations with low levels; they also have less absenteeism and turnover.
