2.2 How to engage? Maintaining and improving employee engagement are increasingly complex for company’s operations these days due to the instable environment and varied economic conditions (Aon Hewitt, 2012). However, if a company has a good performance in employee engagement, it would surely enjoy competitive advantage and better business outcomes than other companies.
Turnover is an organization's largest unnecessary expense. Turnover has not only monetary consequences but lost time, opportunities and decreased morale. High quality training can have a direct impact on decreasing the turnover at an organization. The above discussions about organizational commitment and job satisfaction tie directly into low turnover. When employees feel satisfied at work and are grateful for the career opportunities that have been provided for by the available training, they will be less likely to leave. Also, social comparisons to organizations that invest lesser amounts of resources to train employees will cause the perceived value of their organization to increase thus making it less likely to leave (Lee & Bruvold, 2003). People who experience high levels of quality training are more likely to experience success, on the job satisfaction and commitment which makes leaving less of a factor.
CHAPTER-1 INTRODUCTION INTRODUCTION Training can improved person for e enhancing his efficiency and effectiveness to a particular work area by getting more knowledge in the organization.“Training and development is a function of human resource management concerned with organizational Activity to intend to the performance of individuals and groups in organizational setting.”
The Importance of Training Mercedes Rios Grand Canyon University This research goes in depth and analyzes an organization’s success, which is highly influenced by employee’s behavior and knowledge. Organizations can highly influence their employees by providing the appropriate training in order for employee’s to be satisfied, successful, and committed to work. An organization should focus on the types of training they provide to their employees and observe and allow employees to provide feedback in order to take into account any mistakes an organization might be committing unconsciously. Therefore, if trainees are given the opportunity to perceive the information given to them in a more realistic manner they will
Most organizations do not follow-up on the benefits of training as regards staff performance. As a result of this they don’t take training and development as an important factor in organizational growth and survival. Most manages do not know how to assess the return on investment in training, nor are they equipped with the necessary management tools to monitor the decision making process of such investment. It has been discovered that training and development budget is the first cut when the organization is faced with difficulties because most of them are of the opinion that investment in the area of training and development is not linked to the bottom line of the business. Globalization and rapid technological development has changed the conditions for companies and increased competition in the world markets. The quality of a company’s human resources is the key driver for sustained top-level performance. It has become crucial to continually invest in human resource development in order to guarantee success in the global market. As earlier said, managers engage in minimal training thereby not giving quality training to their employees, this in turn affects the overall outcome of the training and the performance of the staff. Most organizations that have a competitive image see more reasons to train their workers than those who are on the lower rung of the ladder of recognition, but training and development is still needed to create a niche. In the light of the above,

Introduction Employee engagement is today’s leadership priority. However, the catchphrase goes a long way back in the beginning of the 21st century. It has gained interest to this date, which can be credited to Gallup’s first version of the Q12 in the 1990s commonly termed as the Gallup Workplace Audit (Gallup Consulting, 2006). Subsequently, Gallup has continuously refined and expanded their Q12 for current business challenges. Furthermore, several literatures, surveys and evidence-based studies abound that exhibited positive results with employee engagement such as increased performance, safety, retention and profits among others.
Organizations often say that their employees are their greatest asset. However, this statement is only accurate if their employees are engaging in their work. Disengaged employees lead to high attrition, low production, and poor company culture. Employee disengagement in the United States is at its all-time high. According to the

Purpose Researchers have found only 30% of employees in the United States are actively engaged in the workplace (Gallup 2013). In 2010, data provided by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (as cited in Moreland, 2013) show more individuals are voluntarily quitting their jobs. With over 70% of US workers disengaged, this topic has arguably prompted an interest that continues to be earnestly pursued by many. As a result, the Gallup Q12 expands the need for additional research based on their finding of employee engagement.
Employee Engagement An additional factor to be considered is when measuring retention is employee engagement. Employee engagement is the degree to which a worker believes in, or is committed to their work, field, and place of employment (Maslach, C. 2003; Harter, J., et al. 2006). The higher degree to which an employee is engaged, the more likely they are to retain their position.

In the recent years, employee engagement has increased in importance because the more engaged the employee, the less likely they are to leave an organization (Adkins, 2010). An engaged workforce equates to a company being more profitable and performing better on business outcomes (Adkins, 2010). The author will research how a leader’s communication style affects employee engagement within their organization. This research will help companies determine additional trainings or coaching that leaders can participate in so that employees are as engaged as possible.
Leaders also try to achieve the same quality for their own status, which allows them to pursue greater strength, achieve personal goals and future endeavours. According to a recent study conducted by Psychometrics Canada a pioneer in research assessment, has mentioned in one of its report that employee engagement in the organisation plays a major role in the success of any organisation. Accordingly it says that the best way to increase the relation is by working out a strategy that builds positive environment and culture relations between the workers and ensuring a good leader to fit for the purpose. Leaders in the organisation can try to achieve a better employee engagement by listening to followers opinions, communicating his vision with a clarity, providing and developing strategies and solution for the success, and finally recognising the ability of the followers and praising their contributions. Thisaspect of leadership is displayed by general feedback, generating ideas and possess enthusiastic in requesting for help (Bradley P. Owens, 2013). One example of this leadership quality is described by DAVID J. BOBB(David J B, 2013) in his book saying following servant leadership is very difficult as it is not a natural talent to anyone. He takes the example of George Washington, though considered to be a man of high temper and showing excess pride in his capabilities and qualities during his period as a freedom fighter. As he has foreseen the global position he is getting
