Gallup’s 2018 Study of the American Workforce reveals that 70% of American workers are disengaged, meaning they are emotionally disconnected from their organization and manager and have little enthusiasm for or commitment to the work they do. This is costing U.S. Organizations $450 to $550 billion annually in lost productivity, plus an additional $11 billion lost due to employee turnover.
Employee disengagement has hovered around 70% since 2000. Efforts to improve employee engagement over the past 16 years have not worked. As Gallup stated in their 2017 study:
The U.S. Is in the midst of an employee engagement crisis.
A successful effort to improve employee engagement will pay rich dividends. According to Gallup’s studies, engaged employees...
- Give 57% more effort
- Make 41% fewer quality defects
- Have 41% fewer safety accidents
- Have 37% lower absenteeism
- Are 87% less likely to resign
- Managers account for at least 70% of the variance in employee engagement – Gallup.
- Millennials are 35% of the workforce today, and will grow to 75% by 2030 – U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. They prefer a collaborative rather than a competitive workplace. They want feedback from their manager 50% more often than others, and they are quicker to leave when dissatisfied.
- 50% of employees who leave do so because of their manager – Gallup. Command-and-control managers are the number one reason Millennials leave.
“Management is the most important capability an organization has.
The manager’s job is not to manage work, but to develop, coach, and help people.”
"Increasing employee engagement 10% can increase profits $2,400 per employee, per year."
