Employee engagement refers to a situation
where the employees are engaged in their work
and hardly get any time to gossip or spread
rumours. It has been observed that an employ-
ee engaged in work tends to avoid fighting
with others and thus enjoys a warm relation-
ship with his colleagues.
Most of the time he is busy with his work
and stays away from nasty politics or inter-
fering in each other s tasks. Both the two terms
have a direct relationship with each other. In
the real sense, employee engagement is directly
proportional to employee relationship. More
the employees are engrossed in their work;
the better the relation among them.
Let us understand the relation between the
two with an example:
• Michael was heading the marketing and
the branding team of a leading firm. He had
four team members reporting to him. Michael
being a responsible team leader ensured all
his team members were assigned challenging
tasks for them to enjoy their work.
The team members were always on the toes
to do something creative everytime. Michael
took his lunch with his team members in the
company s cafeteria and made sure to spend
some together every weekend.
His team members never fought with each
other, instead enjoyed their work, discussed
things among themselves and came out with
innovative ideas satisfying all. Most of the
time they were seen glued to their workstations
and hardly had any time for lose talks, gossips,
blame games or criticism.
• An employee sitting idle the whole day
at workplace creates problems. It is rightly
said that "an empty mind is a devil s work-
shop." People with no productive work to do
actually look for excuses to argue and even
provoke others to fight.
They are involved in all kinds of destructive
work and pose a threat to the decorum and
peace of the organisation. An employee who
finds his work interesting would never bother
whether his colleague is chatting over the
phone or dating someone. He would be more
concerned with his work and strive hard to
complete it within the desired time frame. He
would utilise his time in completing his assign-
ments to submit it further rather than peeping
into his colleague s computer or finding faults
• An employee who is satisfied with his job
profile would always think in the favour of
the company and would stay away from doing
anything which would bring a bad name to
his team as well as his organisation. He would
prefer working rather than wasting his precious
time in unproductive tasks. Engaged and sat-
isfied employees always try their level best to
work hard and justify their salary.
• An employee who is serious about his
work would definitely complete it at a much
faster rate as compared to non serious workers.
Chances of mistakes in their work would also
be less and but natural they would earn appre-
ciation from their superiors or team leaders.
Their work would be
liked by all and hence
they would definitely
enjoy a healthy relation-
ship with their superiors
and fellow workers.
Employees would be able
to complete their assign-
ments on time and thus
impressing the manage-
• The team leader
should ensure that the
key responsibility areas
of the team members
match with their interests
and specialisation. It is
essential that the
employees don t treat
their work as a burden
and look forward to going
to office daily. In such
cases employees enter the
office with a positive
frame of mind and are
more adjusting and com-
promising with each
They readily help each
other and enjoy a healthy
relationship with their
fellow team members.
An employee must
concentrate on his work
rather than fighting with
others and spoiling his
relationship with his fel-
