Global employee engagement levels look bleak. Gallup reports that just 33% of Americans go to work with gusto. Worldwide, that figure is a mere 13%. In the US alone, disengaged employees cost USD $450 billion to $550 billion per year in lost productivity.
Susan David, one of the world’s leading management thinkers, author of the acclaimed book Emotional Agility, and a member of the Virgin Pulse Institute’s Science Advisory Board, outlines the sheer frustration managers and HR leaders feel when confronting statistics like these. “Too often, they receive the data and wonder: what should I do if my team is feeling unengaged?
“They know engagement is important but want to understand, as a leader in an organisation, how they can actually impact the status quo in a meaningful and practical way?”
Our new paper, The essential leaders’ guide to employee engagement answers exactly these questions.
Developed exclusively with Susan David for Virgin Pulse, offers practical strategies that leaders can use to effectively impact employee engagement in their organisations. It tackles myths, then draws on Susan David’s consultancy research to help leaders identify and implement key drivers of engagement and high performance.
