And if leaders take the right actions to improve employee engagement, business performance can improve dramatically.

The Bottom Line

Highly engaged employees are more than satisfied, more than committed; they are emotionally connected, go out of their way to over-achieve, actively promote your business, and stay with you during good and bad times.

Most of today’s people-oriented leaders want to create higher employee engagement because it makes for a better corporate culture. Most of today’s performance-oriented leaders now realize that employee engagement correlates directly to increased profits and productivity. Few agree however on the tactics to make it happen or on how important engagement is compared to other strategic priorities.

According to Gallup, leaders should be concerned and push engagement higher up the strategic priorities list. Their latest data shows that only 30% of employees are engaged with a whopping 70% Disengaged (52%) and Actively Disengaged (18%). We know that disengaged workers are emotionally disconnected from their organizations and are less committed and motivated than their engaged peers.

They estimate that these actively disengaged employees cost the U.S. between $450 billion to $550 billion each year in lost productivity, theft and sickness. Add the costs of bad customer interactions and the negative impact on workplace morale and culture and the leadership implications are staggering.

Our own employee engagement training research shows that higher engagement equates to 12% higher profit, 19% higher operating income, 18% greater productivity and 12% higher customer satisfaction. When you take into account the impact on retention, absenteeism, and earnings per share, the negative business impact of disengaged employees only grows.

The bottom line, investing in employee engagement training to ensure that your managers are creating the environmental circumstances for a highly-engaged workforce makes good people and financial sense.

To gauge your success on any employee engagement training initiative, always strive to measure and move at least one of the following key metrics:

    • Sales revenue, margin, win rate, portfolio mix, deal size, and sales cycle.
    • Customer acquisition, loyalty, growth, and satisfaction.
    • Leadership execution effectiveness of key corporate strategies.
    • Employee attraction, development, performance, engagement and retention.
    • Project cost, quality, and time.
