Employee Engagement and Satisfaction

How much do you think about employee engagement?

If your answer is “not much,” then think about this: according to 2005 results from the Gallup Q12* (a national survey resulting from hundreds of focus groups and interviews designed to measure employee engagement), engaged employees are more productive and more profitable. If that’s not enough to get your attention, consider these facts:

  • Companies that achieve employee engagement have lower turnover and higher sales growth.
  • Companies with engaged employees experience higher productivity and customer loyalty.
  • Engaged employees work with enthusiasm and feel deeply connected to their company.
  • Engaged employees drive innovation and help move the organization forward.

Need more? Consider the flip side of the equation:

  • Non-engaged employees are essentially sleepwalking through their workday. They show up but do their work without passion or energy.
  • Actively disengaged employees aren’t just unhappy; they fill their days expressing their unhappiness to everyone who will listen. Every day, actively disengaged workers undermine what their co-workers accomplish.
