Engagement relates directly to the level of ownership, accountability and responsibility that a person takes towards performing certain work expectations and obligations. Lower engaged workforces exhibit declining morale, weaker motivation, decreased capacity for decision-making, and ultimately a lower commitment to personal health and wellbeing.
According to the Gallup Organization, a mere 30 percent of US workers are actively engaged in their jobs, and 70 percent are at some level of disengagement, costing businesses an astounding $550 billion per year in underperformance.
In that same study, 87% of executive leadership surveyed feel engagement is very important BUT less than 25% have a plan in place to improve it. Many leaders either ignore or simply have no idea how to address this significant organizational challenge.
