Why Is Engagement So Important?
Employee engagement is linked to employee safety. If you want to create a safer work environment, you need to start with your employees.
In a study of nearly 2 million employees across dozens of industries, it was found that companies with the highest employee engagement rankings are subject to up to 70% fewer safety-related incidents than companies with the least amount of employee engagement (source).
Designated as one of America’s Safest Companies, Hunter Site Services in Deer Park, Texas is proof that building a strong safety culture can lead to an injury-free workplace (source). HSE manager JoAnn DelaO understands that it takes a great commitment to create this kind of environment and that the results are worth it. “An engaged employee is a satisfied employee, an employee who will take pride in their work, an employee who will work safe and be an example,” she said. “Those are the types of employees we all want working at our companies.”
