Employee Engagement… By the Numbers
According to Willis North America, employee disengagement costs U.S. employers $350 Billion per year in lost productivity. Research Works estimates the following index:
- Highly engaged employees: 20%
- Engaged employees: 15%
- Disengaged employees: 40%
- Actively disengaged employees: 25%
By the numbers, fully 65% of employees fall into the disengagement categories; leaving only 35% employees at some level of engagement. This almost works out to the Pareto Principle (80/20 Rule). In fact, the Pareto Principle does apply if you count only the 20% of employees in the “highly engaged” category.
If a company does not address the disengaged workers, this leaves little to expect other than the highly engaged employees will voluntarily leave their employer at some point in the near future. A-Players desire being around other A-Players.
