Show Me The Money Blog

Back with another installment in our series on Employee Engagement. We’ve covered the basics, the importance, the methods, and even the speed of obtaining engagement metrics. We’ve also discussed the link between employee engagement and customer satisfaction. Now, let’s get down to brass tacks—how does employee engagement impact your bottom line?

Engagement and ROI: An Inseparable Pair

The notion that ‘people are our greatest asset’ is often bandied about in corporate circles, but how often is it proven in financial terms? Employee engagement isn’t just an HR buzzword; it’s an ROI multiplier.

Numbers Don’t Lie: 4% Boost in Sales

Yes, you read that right. According to various studies, companies with higher levels of engagement reported an increase in sales by up to 4%. Still think engagement is just ‘feel-good’ HR speak?

Breaking Down the Impact

Reduced Turnover Costs

Engaged employees are less likely to leave, saving your company the significant cost of hiring and training replacements.

Higher Productivity

Engaged employees are more productive, increasing output, and improving service quality—factors that directly influence your profits.

Enhanced Company Reputation

Engaged employees become brand ambassadors. Their engagement levels affect customer satisfaction and public perception, potentially leading to increased market share.

A Case Study: Best Buy

Best Buy found that for every 0.1% increase in employee engagement at a particular store, there was an associated $100,000 increase in annual operating income for that store. They invested in engagement and watched their profits soar.

The Cumulative Effect

This isn’t a one-off; it’s a self-reinforcing cycle. Higher engagement leads to better business results, which in turn increases engagement even further.


If you’re still skeptical about the financial impact of employee engagement, it’s high time you reevaluate. Engagement is not just a ‘nice-to-have;’ it’s a ‘must-have’ for a sustainable, profitable business.
