Highly engaged employees are committed to their organization and invested in its success. They are proactive in sharing their ideas, in promoting their company and organization inside and out, and they exert discretionary effort – above and beyond what is required just to earn their salary and stay employed.
Clearly, employee engagement is a worthy goal. Based on The Henry Miller Group’s detailed review and analysis of the recent studies by major research firms around the world, there is clear, compelling, and mounting evidence that employee engagement is strongly correlated to individual, group and corporate performance outcomes – including recruiting, retention, turnover, individual performance and productivity, service, and customer loyalty as well as to bottom-line results such as growth in operating margins, increased profitability, and revenue growth rates.
Yet, according to Gallup’s 2013 State of the Global Workplace study, only 13% of employees across 142 countries (30% in the U.S.) are engaged at work. Employee engagement remains a major challenge for companies and organizations worldwide – and an often elusive outcome even for those organizations who are already committed to achieving a high level of employee engagement and who already have employee engagement programs in place.
