10 Shocking Stats About Employee Engagement (Infographic)

“To win in the marketplace you must first win in the workplace.” -Doug Conant, Former Campbell’s Soup CEO

Employee engagement is not about employees showing up  every day at work. People who are engaged, give emotional and discretionary effort on behalf of company goals, according to OfficeVibe. When leaders do not make employee engagement a business priority, it is the equivalent a CEO carelessly throwing boat loads of cash out his corner office window every day.

    What this doesn’t show is the percentage of the engaged workers getting weekly, if not daily, positive feedback from clients who will not receive ANY kind of raise or bonus to thank them for their hard work. Whereas many of the low engaged workers (who I call the COO’s, managers, supervisors and the higher ups), receiving little or no positive feedback but who gladly dump their work onto the highly engaged workers, will get raises, incentives and bonuses.
    At least that is how it works at our company.
    Where is my future desire to keep being highly engaged in my job if I get no recognition for it? I get clients sending my boss positive feedback on my work and my yearly job review for the last 12 years has been marked “Grade 1 – “Consistently Exceeds Expectations” (our review grades run 1 – Highly Exceeds Expectations to 5 – Consistently Fails to Meet Expectations”).
    One can keep being told that one’s company is facing “financial headwinds” but then reads of one of their company’s many CEO’s, after nearly bringing financial ruin for our company in two countries, was allowed to retire with a monthly stipend of $86,000 a MONTH for the rest of his life. $86,000 a month for his incompetence which is more than I make in a year for all of my happy clients and positive feedback.
    This year will be even worse with the new Pay for Performance Model instituted for reviews.
    Where is the initiative for any employee to continue to be a highly engaged worker?

      Rosemary, thank you for your comments. Recognition for a job well done is missing within organizations with low employee engagement. What does that cost? Nothing! I’m sorry to hear about your situation. It sounds like your employer is upside down on channelling their good vibes to their people. When your unhappy at work it affects all areas of life. Take care of yourself first and consider moving to a new company where your skills will be appreciated. To your success, Kevin
