Employee engagement is at an all-time low. Recently, a 2022 Gallup poll found that 65% of US employees and 79% of employees globally are disengaged from their work. That’s over 6 out of 10 US employees and an extraordinary 8 out of 10 employees worldwide!
What’s going on?
The simplest answer is the pandemic, of course. Its stresses, economic and societal disruption, and companies’ varying responses have driven the so-called “Great Resignation” worldwide.
But when we dig deeper into organizational behavior, we find that the direct cause is neither new nor complicated—employees feel they have been unfairly treated by their direct managers.
We know that employee engagement in their work yields significant benefits for organizations. For example, increased customer brand loyalty, low voluntary turnover rates, and increased revenue are among the many positive outcomes of strong employee engagement. And proactively working to create high levels of employee engagement has been central to the success of organizations like Southwest Airlines, Microsoft, and Apple.
