Why do employees stay?
Sometimes it can be really hard to know. But while employee engagement used to be a sort of vague and abstract concept, today we have the tools and processes to measure just how much it affects the workforce. And people are paying attention. After all, Gallup's State of the Workplace survey states that organizations with an average of 9.3 engaged employees for every actively disengaged employee in 2010-2011 experienced 147% higher earnings per share (EPS) compared with their competition in 2011-2012. In contrast, those with an average of 2.6 engaged employees for every actively disengaged employee experienced 2% lower EPS compared with their competition during that same time period.
Actually, we seem to have a pretty good handle on disengagement (70 million and counting are...) and the benefits of an engaged workforce but where are the ideas to actually get us there?
