While employee engagement numbers in the US outpace those in the rest of the world, there is still plenty of room for improvement.
Current US statistics put the percentage of truly engaged employees (those who are excited to come to work, advocate for their company and drive success in others) at around 33%. This means that two-thirds of your staff are either not engaged with their work and simply punching the clock or worse, actively disengaged – working against your business and bringing morale down around them.
What these numbers also show is that there is a huge opportunity for improvement. What would be the monetary value added to the bottom line of your business or organization if you had a 2% increase in employee engagement in the next 6 – 12 months? What about a 5% increase?
