According to Gallup, only about 30% of North American workers are actively engaged at their jobs. “Engagement has become on of the more recognizable, buzz-worthy measurements in human resources. But is it overrated? According to one expert it’s actually underrated.”
Jim Harter, chief scientist and engagement expert at Gallup, describes Employee Engagement as “the nexus between workplace attitudes and performance. It’s really the attitudes that predict if people are likely to show up to work, be highly productive, innovative and profitable.” The summary of his research shows that “the businesses in the top quartile of engagement averaged 22 percent higher profit than those in the bottom quartile.”
