by | Apr 24, 2024 | Blog, Resources


     One of the biggest conversations I have with CEO’s and executive teams is around employee engagement. Employers are more concerned and perplexed than ever by the rate of churn and turn-over. Employee engagement is crucial for organizational success. Yet, only 15% of employees worldwide feel engaged at work. There are three key factors contributing to disengagement: 




     Employee engagement has emerged as a critical factor in determining organizational success. Yet, despite its acknowledged importance, many companies struggle to cultivate a workforce that is truly engaged. In this post, we’ll delve into the pressing issue of employee engagement in the workplace, exploring its root causes and potential solutions. 

     Numerous studies have highlighted the concerning reality of employee engagement—or rather, the lack thereof. According to Gallup’s State of the Global Workplace report, only 15% of employees worldwide feel engaged in their jobs. This startling statistic underscores the pervasive nature of the problem across industries and geographies.

So how do employers turn this trend around?

  • Regular Check-Ins: Schedule one-on-one meetings with employees to provide feedback, address concerns, and show appreciation for their efforts. 
  • Clarity of Purpose: Clearly communicate the organization’s mission, values, and goals, and help employees understand how their work contributes to the bigger picture. 
  • Training and Development: Invest in employee development opportunities to help them grow both personally and professionally. 
  • Recognition and Rewards: Recognize and reward employees for their hard work and achievements, whether through monetary incentives, public praise, or other forms of acknowledgment.

     By focusing on building strong relationships, fostering a sense of purpose, and addressing the underlying causes of disengagement, organizations can unlock the full potential of their employees and drive sustainable success. Ultimately, it’s not just about ticking boxes or implementing the latest engagement trends—it’s about creating a workplace where people feel valued, inspired, and excited to come to work every day. And that is the real key to unlocking employee engagement.
