Understanding employee engagement is crucial for a companies success. No matter the industry, employee engagement impacts turnover rates, product quality, and overall productivity. Knowing how to identify, define and improve employee engagement can significantly impact your business.

In 2000, Gallup began tracking many types of workplace data from all over the U.S. to better understand workers, their needs, and their motivation. They researched and analyzed many workforce trends across the U.S. and laid out a framework on engagement metrics based on this data. Gallup concluded that there are three main types of engagement when it comes to most workers; actively engaged, not engaged, actively disengaged.

Three Types of Worker Engagement

  • Actively Engaged: An actively engaged employee is defined as someone who is passionate about their job. Typically these employees enjoy what they do and manage their tasks with a smile. These are employees who typically always do what they need to in order to make sure a task is complete and they will often go above and beyond in order to solve workplace challenges. They usually form strong relationships to their work and are usually the first to help address any need. As of 2021 Gallup reporting, on average 36% of employees are categorized as “actively engaged.”
  • Not Engaged: The second type of employee Gallup recognized is the non-engaged. The majority or workers fall into this category. The non-engaged employee is typically the person who is just going around in circles. They clock in, do their work, and clock out. This person typically is just there to do their job and put in their time. Many of these employees may have once been actively engaged, but no longer agree with where the business is headed, or where their position is headed. While they are not necessarily a bad employee, they are not long bringing the same energy and often need a push in the right direction to find their inspiration and purpose again. This type of employee makes up 51% of the workforce.
  • Actively Disengaged: This final type of employee is one that is an outlier, but can create a big impact on the team and overall performance. This employee is typically one that is overall unhappy with they’re employment and is not afraid to speak about it. These workers are typically under-performing and are usually seeking other means of employment. These employees may have once felt more engaged, but maybe felt cheated out of a promotion or raise, or may have just begun to no longer like what they do. These employees typically make the most mistakes and can cost the company the most. This type of employee may need some push in the right direction, but may end up leaving if that does not work. Only 13% of employees are actively disengaged.

Research confirms that engagement lowers employees’ intention to leave. The Corporate Leadership Council (2004) found that the most engaged employees are 87% less likely to leave their organization.

Ways to Improve Employee Engagement

To improve employee engagement in your firm, evaluate how your workforce would answer the following questions and actively address the questions where answers are not clear:

• I have the resources and training to thrive in my role.

• I have the opportunity to do what I do best.

• I frequently receive recognition, praise and constructive criticism.

• I trust my manager and believe they have my best interests in mind.

• My voice is heard and valued.

• I clearly understand the mission and purpose and how I contribute to each.

• I have opportunities to learn and grow both personally and professionally.

Being able to understand the levels of employee engagement within your company can be a huge part of your form’s success. By understanding and being able to address areas where employee engagement is not optimal, your company can see great increases in employee retention, productivity and quality.

In the recruiting and employment world, your resume is your very first impression to a potential employer. When hiring managers are receiving dozens and possibly hundreds of resumes for the same job posting, you need to know how to make yours stand out. Whether you’ve held a dozen jobs, or none at all, you’ll still want to make sure the tips below are kept in mind for building an effective resume.

Be Mindful Of Layout: Layout and format are important elements of your resume. Some take it upon themselves to make the most stylish and modern resume with bright colors or even a photo to help them stand out, but truthfully you want to try to keep this to a minimum. Think instead, clear and easy to read. Feel free to add a bit of color or design element, especially if you’re entering a creative field, but be sure that it doesn’t take away from the content. After all, your resume should speak for itself and shouldn’t need flashy colors to make you stand out.

Listing Your Past Experiences: Speaking of layout, many resume writers will agree that keeping your past experiences to reverse chronological order, starting with your most recent experience is best. This allows the hiring manager to quickly see how your current positions can relate to the available ones. You’ll also want to be sure to include the employer name, your title, a timeline for which you’ve worked there, as well as a quantifiable summation of your performance within that position. Be mindful of any lapses of employment as these often stick out as red flags to hiring managers, so consider organizing positions by relevance rather than time.

Keep Their Attention: As we mentioned before, hiring managers are seeing tons of resumes for their available positions and may only have 10 or so seconds to dedicate to yours before they move on, so be sure to include a brief summary of who you are and what you bring to the table. You want to avoid cliche terms, and instead, check out the job description and include some relatable keywords right from there.

Quantifiable Job Summaries: It’s easy to list what you’ve done at a position and what job duties you were tasked with, but employers want to know what you’ve accomplished in your role and what you brought to the table that you can do similarly for them. With this being said, rather than listing out various job functions you did, list out your measurable accomplishments, such as, “enacting a new marketing campaign and increasing leads by 35%” or “simplified the workload for all team members by introducing new technologies and saving the company 50% overall.” This helps the hiring manager assess how valuable you can be to their team.

Keep It Custom: When applying to each position, tailor your resume and cover letter specifically for that position. Change a few keywords or add in experiences that better relate to each position you apply to.

You want your resume to appear clean and well thought out in order to keep the attention of the hiring manager to better increase your chances of scheduling an interview. Once you update your resume and are ready to apply, check out our available positions across the Southeast at condustrial.com/job-listings.

While we are certainly not tax professionals, we would like to help you during this confusing time by pointing you in the right direction of where to find information and how to file your taxes for free!

As we are just starting tax season and many are trying to figure out what to do, advertisers are showcasing their best for the paid service such as H&R Block, Turbo Tax, etc. but shouldn’t there be easier and even free services? Especially for those who will be filing under a 1099? Well there are! While the IRS requires us to file taxes each year, they don’t require that we have to pay to file them. That’s where some free services come in.

One free service that is offered is directly through the IRS’ Free File service this allows you to prepare and file your taxes through a guided format at an IRS partner site, listed in the link above. Another free service is offered through Cash App Taxes which was previously run through Credit Karma. Cash App allows you to completely prepare and file your taxes for free regardless of deductions. They also offer protection software to limit any audits performed on your filing when done so correctly.

Additional Tax Preparation Resources

  • Sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), VITA provides free income tax preparation assistance to individuals and families with a household income of $60,000 a year or less. Learn more.
  • Prepare your taxes free online through MyFreeTaxes.com, a partnership of United Way and H&R Block. All you need to get started is a copy of your W-2, which can be uploaded from your smartphone.
  • If your adjusted gross income is less than $65,000 ($95,000 if filing jointly) and you live in Berkeley, Charleston, or Dorchester counties, visit SCThrive.org/filetaxes/ or call 800-726-8774 for free taxpayer preparation assistance.
  • Free tax help for taxpayers 60 or older is available through the IRS Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) program. These IRS-certified volunteers can answer questions related to pensions and retirement-related issues. Most TCE sites are operated by the AARP Foundation’s Tax-Aide program, which offers free tax preparation help from February 1 through April 15. You don’t have to be an AARP member. Call 888-227-7669 toll free or visit the Tax-Aide Site Locator to find a location in South Carolina.

All of these programs are great options to assist you in the tax process. And while there are benefits to going with a tax specialist company to assist you, such as if you have many deductions or unique tax filing paperwork, utilizing a free service is relatively simple for someone who’s held only a couple of jobs and has a simple tax return to file.

Regardless of whichever be sure to prepare and file your taxes by Monday April, 18th 2022 to avoid any fines or penalties from the IRS due to late filing.
