Abstract: Employee engagement is a yardstickto measure the degree of association between an employee and his organization. Engaged employees, give more importance to achievement of organizational goals without giving much weightage to remuneration and incentives. Percentages of fully engaged employees in most of the companies are very less. Companies have to rethink that by providing all facilities, it is not necessary for an employee to be fully engaged. Since employee engagement is the internal motivation of an employee, so companies should have equal concern for the entire employee regarding their job and future. Nowadays most of the companies are adopting innovative methods to reduce the attrition level. Our paper is a modest attempt to reveal the importance of employee engagement in corporate world. The engagement levels of various countries have also been included so as to provide insights about engaged employees and disengaged employees and how far disengaged employees indirectly affect the success of an organization.
Keywords: Employee engagement, disengaged employees, internal motivation, commitment, performance.
