When employees are properly engaged in their workplace, they constantly improve and keep the organization performing at a high level. Good people management practices make a big difference in increasing employee confidence and loyalty.
Investing in your employees by offering them the right benefits motivates them to perform and increase their productivity. Employee engagement can drastically improve when positive, honest feedback and timely praise are provided at work.
Your employees need to be praised when they are doing a good job, and they need to be motivated when they have to improve in certain areas.

An employee might need to take time off for a number of reasons, but when there is an unexpected absence, it can negatively impact an organization’s productivity and ultimately its revenues.
There are times when employees need to take time off for genuinely unexpected reasons. But many times, absenteeism is a result of job frustration stemming from deeper issues at the workplace.
Employees who suffer from burnout, disengagement or stress are absent from work significantly more frequently, and organizations should pay a lot more attention to root causes of their absenteeism.
