Did you know that a Gallup study shows that only 26 percent of the U.S. working population is engaged in their job? The rest are either just putting in their time (55 percent) or are actively disengaged to the point of spreading their discontent (19 percent). This data proves that lost productivity, decreased innovation and the high cost of turnover are cutting into business profits everywhere. Obviously, employee engagement is something all organizations should care about.
What keeps employees engaged?
It turns out that there are widespread misconceptions about what employees want and need in a work role. For example, the Saratoga Institute conducted a survey and revealed that 89 percent of managers believe employees leave for more money, while 88 percent of employees stated that they leave for reasons other than money. Furthermore, the factors influencing employee engagement can vary widely from company to company.
How do you find out what your employees need to become more engaged?
Asking is a great place to start. An engagement survey can help you address the unspoken desires among team members that are holding them back from giving it their all.
