Building Engagement at Every Stage of the Employee Lifecycle

Learn to Optimize the Stages of Employee Engagement in Your Organization

Leading organizations understand the importance of employee engagement and the significant impact it can have on productivity, morale, and overall company performance. Numerous studies show that when employees are engaged, they feel a connection with the company and believe the work they do is important and, as a result, work harder. Engaged employees also tend to promote the company, have significantly lower absenteeism and turnover rates, and contribute to the company’s goals.

At CCI, we regularly receive requests to conduct our E3 Engagement Survey™ from organizations looking to measure and improve the current levels of engagement in their workplace. Though employee engagement surveys remain a best practice and one of the most effective ways to manage engagement, the most successful strategy is prioritizing engagement throughout every stage of the employee lifecycle.

The Six Stages of the Employee Lifecycle

To better put the employee lifecycle model into action, it is important to answer the question, “what is the employee lifecycle”? The employee lifecycle refers to the natural stages an employee goes through during their time at an organization. These stages are:

  1. Attraction
  2. Recruitment
  3. Onboarding
  4. Development
  5. Retention
  6. Separation

The employee lifecycle is a continuous cycle, with engagement at each stage ultimately influencing the next. For instance, a separating employee who feels a positive connection with the company may refer a candidate for their replacement or a future role. And as research indicates, referred employees stay longer at the company and have greater job satisfaction. Therefore, consistent effort to engage employees at every stage of the lifecycle is crucial and will ultimately benefit recruitment, retention, and productivity.
