I’m not sure if the title of today’s post is a major surprise. We’ve been talking about employee engagement for quite some time. In fact, I’m concerned that the conversation has turned to noise. But regardless of what you call the term, engagement remains a key business issue.
That’s only a one part of the 2015 Employee Engagement Trends Report compiled by Quantum Workplace. The report analyzed close to 500,000 surveys to uncover workplace trends at a national, regional, organizational and industry level. I really liked that they prepared this infographic to share some high-level themes from their research.
I walked away from their report with three takeaways:
1) Leadership matters. It’s time to invest in their development.
2) Employee recognition is critical for growth and retention.
3) Companies have got to start paying people competitive wages.
If you’re interested in a deeper dive on these trends, you can find the full trends report here. To attract and retain the best talent, organizations have to be ready to complete. To effectively compete, you have to know what the competition is doing.
