Employee engagement is one of the most important aspects of work life. If employees are engaged, they will be motivated to perform well and their productivity levels will ultimately rise. Disengaged employees, however, will be dissatisfied with their positions and will have a lacklustre attitude towards the company's goals. The infographic below from 15Five outlines how organizations can engage their employees.
According to the infographic, only 30% of America's full-time workers feel engaged at work. Half are uninspired and are simply present at work, while 20% of workers are actively disengaged.
To keep employees engaged, managers have to ensure they provide ample feedback and give praise when it's due. This feedback can do wonders for engagement -- 98% of employees who receive little to no feedback are disengaged, those who only receive negative feedback are still 20 times more likely to be engaged than those who don't receive any feedback, and those who receive feedback on their strengths are 30 times to be more engaged.
