The Impact of Employee Engagement
The importance of employee engagement continues to rise as organizations become more aware of the negative business results that can occur with poor employee engagement.
‘The Impact of Employee Engagement’ infographic highlights some of these key points and trends.
The level of disengagement is staggering
If you thought lack of engagement was down to a handful of employees you’re in for a fright, not even one third of US employees are engaged in the workplace.
Employee Engagement = Productivity
With such high levels of disengagement in the US workplace, it’s not surprising to think that organizations are losing as much as $550billion just through lower levels of productivity.
Increased Employee Turnover & Accidents
Beyond productivity levels, organizations with poor employee engagement suffered over double the number of accidents and almost one third higher levels of staff turnover.
Engaged Employees Really Make a Difference
Organizations with highly engaged workforces have been shown to dramatically transform productivity levels. With employees truly involved in the business, results have shown organizations outperform lesser engaged organizations by 202%.
So what does this mean for my organization?
Put simply, employee engagement is not something to be ignored. Your people are what makes your company work and recognising their needs to be involved is essential in driving a more effective, engaged and happy workforce.
