Gallup Employee Engagement Results Not Budging

Gallup 2013 Survey Front PageGallup’s latest annual report on worldwide employee engagement finds once again that all the work on fostering employee engagement is still not moving the needle in how employees measure their own engagement: Only 13% worldwide report themselves as fully engaged in their work.

Part of this dismal result may be exacerbated by how Gallup defines engagement:

“Employees are emotionally invested in and focused on creating value for their organizations every day.”*

Even those of us who would describe ourselves as fully engaged might stop short of “every day!”

Still, the survey again finds over 60% of employees disengaged in some way, leaving most employees un-invested in creating value, and even working against creativity and innovation. That is a huge area of opportunity for companies that do emphasize employee engagement and work hard at embedding it as a leadership mindset.

Productivity Fostered by Engagement is a Competitive Advantage

As we have said before many times (here is just one post), organizations that do make it a point to raise productivity through greater employee engagement reap competitive advantage. The Gallup survey supports this claim:

  • Work units in the top 25% of Gallup’s Q12 Client Database have significantly higher productivity, profitability, and customer ratings, less turnover and absenteeism, and fewer safety incidents than those in the bottom 25%.
  • Organizations in Gallup’s Q12 Client Database with an average of 9.3 engaged employees for every actively disengaged employee in 2010-2011 experienced 147% higher earnings per share (EPS) compared with their competition in 2011-2012. In contrast, those with an average of 2.6 engaged employees for every actively disengaged employee experienced 2% lower EPS compared with their competition during that same time period.
  • Globally, 44% of engaged employees say their employers are hiring people and expanding the size of their workforces vs. 34% of those who are not engaged and 25% of actively disengaged employees who say the same.

Gallup Engagement Graphic for 2013

Bovo-Tighe can serve as a prime example of the need for aligned, passionate action

As consultants, we must become emotionally invested and engaged in our clients’ work. That full engagement is the only way we know to make our own business a success: It sustainably builds client relationships because their successes are our successes. We are not just selling assessments or training modules, or coaching and mentoring regimes. We “sell” customized solutions that help our clients achieve more with the same people.

What to do about the unengaged “Paycheck-Pullers” who are 60% of your workforce?

Your goal in fostering team engagement would seem to be to encourage such people to leave and go pull a paycheck somewhere else, and replace them with someone ready and willing to engage and contribute at a high level.

Here’s the thing though: It is both cheaper and more productive to have the paycheck-puller become the highly engaged contributor. Your role as a leader is to provide the motivation for that person to fire themselves as a paycheck-puller and rehire themselves as a strong contributor.

We spend a lot of time on this blog exploring just how you go about assisting yourself and your teammates to make that transition, so browse around to find some ideas.

Does this fresh data from Gallup surprise you?  Is your own organization making a successful effort to raise engagement? What has worked? What hasn’t?

 

*This specific definition is actually a high standard to meet, especially the everyday part! How many of your employees, even the great ones, would describe themselves using the above phrase? How many would instead admit to not meeting the “every day” standard, even if they considered themselves highly engaged? How many might stop short of using the phrase “emotionally invested?” Some might prefer “deeply invested”, or some other phrase that stays away from the highly personal topic of “emotion.”
