Employee Engagement – Solutions that Work!

Dwight Mihalicz,

As executives and managers in organizations, we don’t need research to tell us that engaged employees are better performers. We all know how important it is to have engaged employees. The research evidence is overwhelming. Consider these facts from Gallup when comparing top quartile engaged companies vs bottom quartile:
  • Engaged employees have 48% FEWER safety incidents
  • There are 41% LESS quality incidents
  • Absenteeism is 43% LOWER
  • Customer ratings are 10% HIGHER
  • Productivity is 21% HIGHER
  • Profitability is 22% HIGHER

When they need to make decisions, how can they be assured that they are making decisions that are consistent with what their managers would want?
