Purpose and Shared Values are the Heart in Employee Engagement

Summary: Many companies struggle to keep their employees engaged at work, which can lower profits in certain circumstances. In order to get employees engaged, many companies have begun putting emphasis on their purpose and mission. Surveys cite that many employees, especially in the millenial generation, find it very important to work at an organization that has values that align with their own personal values. For this and other reasons, many organizations have followed through with corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives to reach out to the community and encourage their employees to do the same. These CSR programs are also being tied to leadership programs in many organizations to keep leadership engaged and allow them to share that purpose with their employees.
