For your business to prosper you need effective engagement with your stakeholders. This includes your customers, employees, suppliers, business owners and the community. But the engagement deficit that many companies experience, compromises not just prosperity, but survival.
Consider one set of stakeholders – your employees. If your company is like most others, your employees aren’t fully engaged. And if they are not engaged they won’t be investing the discretionary energy that distinguishes your company from your competitors. Imagine that they are working at 60% of their capability – this means that you are paying them for five days and getting three days work. And that’s just your employees. There are costs accrued from engagement deficits with other stakeholders.
Establishing engagement skills as a core competency for your organisation will reduce the engagement deficit and lay foundations for greater productivity and prosperity.
Stakeholder engagement enhances reputation Organisations sometimes take for granted their license to operate. By becoming more relevant and more engaged with local communities, those communities, and your suppliers are more likely to support you in tough times. Enlightened organisations seek to enhance their reputation through enduring engagement rather than shorter-term public relations campaigns. Relevant organisations are more sustainable.
