The year is well underway and a number of the conversations I have been having so far are focused on employee engagement and more to the point how can we help employees become more engaged. To help, I would like to share an article I read last year Dale Carnegie Training Uncovers Major Drivers of Employee Engagement which looked at the three main drivers of employee engagement.
- Relationship with the immediate supervisor.
- Belief in senior leadership.
- Pride in working for their company.
If an employee is dissatisfied with their immediate supervisor there is an 80% chance that they are disengaged.
Employees are inspired by having role models that encourage goal achievement, contribute to positive engagement and a better overall workplace environment.
Employee engagement is highest among those that take pride in working for their company.
My thoughts are that these three findings are important when it comes to employee engagement. I would also add seeking their input into decisions, really listening to employees and provide real and timely feedback. Do these findings surprise you? Can you add anymore? I am interested to hear your thoughts.
