Disengaged Employees Cost Businesses

Shocking stats in a recent article from  Business2Community cite a Gallup study indicating that 70% of American employees are either Not Engaged or Actively Disengaged employees.

“70 percent either hate going to work or have mentally checked out to the point they cost their companies money,” writes author Margie Bresslour.

In an average business only 3 out of 10 employees are actively engaged, meaning they are willing to invest their discretionary effort to help the business succeed.  The impact on business performance when organizations are successful in moving the dial to the right from 30% engaged employees can’t be understated.

What can businesses do to improve employee engagement? Recognizing employees for their contributions and ensuring that they feel valued and important to the mission of the organization, is arguably one of the most important things a leader can do for the success of their business.  Further, the Business2Community article notes, “A worldwide study by Towers Watson concluded that “the single highest determinant for engagement is whether or not employees feel that their manager is genuinely interested in their well being”.

Terryberry helps businesses move the employee engagement dial through effective employee recognition programs and recognition training for managers.

Terryberry’s Mike Byam is featured on Talk Business 360.  Hear the interview where Byam discusses how leaders effectively use employee recognition to impact their businesses.

“Employees are yearning to be recognized for their contributions,” say Byam.  ”If people are recognized effectively, they’re going to perform at a higher level; they’re going to be more engaged; and they’re going to be less likely to look for other opportunities.”
