Lack of employee engagement is a major issue facing businesses today and depending on the industry, between one-third and one-half of employees report work conditions that keep them from being as productive as they could be. This new Korn Ferry infographic provides insights and a guide for ensuring your teams are both willing and able to make maximum efforts.
We all know that when people feel motivated, they perform better, which leads to the best business outcomes. Korn Ferry research confirms this – it shows that employee engagement is a leading indicator of organisational health and performance.
The research shows that improving levels of employee engagement leads to significantly higher levels of subsequent ROA, ROI, and ROE.1
Engagement is not only good for employees, it’s good for the bottom line:
- Companies where employees scored high on engagement saw nearly double the 5-year sales growth rates of those with low engagement scores.
- Companies where employees scored high on feeling enabled to do their jobs saw nearly triple the 5-year sales growth rates of those with low scores in this area.
The problem is, nearly 30% of workers globally are neither engaged nor enabled.
