As a business owner or team leader, how often do you think about employee engagement? Are you aware of whether your employees are absorbed in their work and are enthusiastic about it or whether they are distracted and disengaged?
For the last 30 years, Gallup has conducted an Employee Engagement survey in 195 countries around the world in 70 languages. The survey measures the level of employee engagement and categorizes this information into 3 groups of employees; Engaged, Not Engaged and Actively Disengaged. Here are some indicators of these engagement levels.
- Work with Passion
- Feel a Profound Connection to Their Company
- Drive Innovation
- Advance the Goals and Success of the Organization
- Essentially “Checked Out”
- Sleepwalking Through Their Work Day
- Put in Time, But Not Energy or Passion
- Unhappy – and Not Just at Work
- Acting Out Their Unhappiness
- Undermine Accomplishments of Others
- Purposefully Damage the Company
So, now that you are familiar with the levels of engagement and their indicators, you should be able to take a look around your office and see where your employees and co-workers stand.
