Recall the Jack Welch quote, “There are only three measurements that tell you nearly everything you need to know about your organization’s overall performance: employee engagement, customer satisfaction, and cash flow.” Then consider how many of your people meet the first criteria: highly engaged. We already know the answer: Not Enough!
Research by our Thought Leader partner, TRClark, shows that only about 25% of employees today are highly engaged. And in spite of their best efforts, companies can’t seem to move the needle beyond 25%.
The key is understanding who is primarily responsible for engagement. Organizations must still play a role, of course. But 75-80% of leaders and employees surveyed by TRClark this year said that the employee is primarily responsible for his or her own engagement.
Luckily for all of us, Dr. Timothy Clark and his team have developed a training solution and coaching process to solve the problem. If you just missed our Own Your Own Engagement webinar, here’s a second chance to hear Dr. Clark speak about the need for organizations to shift ownership for engagement to their employees, and to see some new tools for making it happen.
Engagement is the source of sustainable competitive capital. Highly engaged employees outperform their rivals by a significant margin. Two great reasons, among many, to start moving that 25% needle today.
