Every year, millions of dollars are lost because two-thirds of America’s workforce claims they are not engaged in their work and are just going through the motions. Many companies understand there is a problem but they are baffled as to how to solve it.
Engaged employees make the difference between a company that’s just getting along and one that’s built to excel. Engagement correlates with productivity, customer service, and profitability. So, for example, organizations with strong employee engagement scores generate revenue growth at a rate 2.5 times higher than companies with lower marks, according to a report.
Many factors can impede meaningful engagement. These include organizational tumult, distrust of managers, job market unease, and a lack of cohesion among workers and teams. But organizations that try to buy their employees’ enthusiasm and commitment are likely to be disappointed. While higher pay and better benefits generally improve a worker’s satisfaction and overall contentment, they don’t truly drive engagement and the extra effort that comes with it, engagement experts say.
So how can we go beyond office pizza parties to get to the emotional core of our employees? And what are the most important factors of employee engagement?
The good news is that companies can improve engagement by paying more attention to their employees. The great news is that doing so doesn’t have to involve spending large sums of money. Rather, leaders must act deliberately and thoughtfully.
This PDC/RCH course examines how a simple change in company culture can change the productivity of your entire workforce, and the best part is that it is a free solution.

Her journey through that project is chronicled in her book, “52 New Friends” and her video series, “How to Make Friends & Beat Loneliness.” In an effort to help people connect together in positive ways, Erica founded Erica McBeth Productions in 2020 and McBeth Marketing in 2021. She sits on the Arizona Chapter Board of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and educates people on the benefits of how human connection can transform their companies and their lives. She is a speaker, a writer, a storyteller, an advocate for human connection and the self-proclaimed slayer of loneliness.
Productions is a consulting company based out of Phoenix, Arizona whose mission
is to educate companies on how the power of human connection can impact their
bottom lines. The company was founded in 2020, after the company’s
founder, Erica McBeth, conducted an experiment to meet and have a conversation
with one new person a week for a full year. The extraordinary results of
that experiment so deeply impacted her life that she moved on to become a
writer, a speaker, an advocate for human connection and the self-proclaimed
Slayer of Loneliness.
