The percentage of U.S. workers in 2015 who Gallup considered engaged in their jobs averaged 32%. The majority (50.8%) of employees were “not engaged,” while another 17.2% were “actively disengaged.” The 2015 averages are largely on par with the 2014 averages and reflect little improvement in employee engagement over the past year. Gallup, January 2016
Knowing that the majority of your employees are “not engaged” may keep you awake at night for several reasons: low sales, high turnover, loss of revenue, possible reduction in force, constant and repetitive training, drab work environment, unenthusiastic employees, low succession pool, loss of company brand, answering to the board on all of these issues etc.
Based on those Gallup numbers, that means that if you are part of a 300 EE organization: 96 employees are “engaged”, 152 are “not engaged”, and 52 are “actively disengaged”.
The 152 “not engaged” folks are doing the minimum to get by – they have checked out and will probably change jobs soon. The 52 “actively disengaged” folks are extremely unhappy about their job and the company, and always make that known by their words and behavior. That leaves a very important question; How is this impacting the 96 engaged employees and the future of the company?
Imagine being a part of an organization where the majority of your employees are actively engaged, love coming to work, inspire and motivate others, have high energy levels, and are enthusiastic and value themselves and their job, the company, and achieving individual and company goals and objectives!
