The statistics are alarming in the industry. Gallup, Culture Amp, and other large firms concentrate heavily on surveys revolving around collecting data regarding employee engagement. On our industry statistics page, we have some mind blowing stats for you to check out!
But other then the statistics, the way your employees act, their behaviors, their attitudes, the morale, their performance levels and productivity metrics, and their communication are triggers to employee engagement. Are employees in a good mood or not? Are employees happy at work or not? Are employees producing effectively or not? These are simple questions and have simple answers if the management team just observes for a bit.
Most of all, the employees will also reflect the same behaviors from the management team – so if we think it is all the employees, take a closer look! Your management team may be the ones rubbing off on the team!
