Employee engagement isn’t just a buzzword

If you’re in HR, we feel your pain. You probably hear the phrase “employee engagement” so much it’s tattooed on your brain. (There’s a rumor that someone at YouEarnedIt actually has an employee engagement tattoo, but we won’t get into that here.)

There’s a reason employee engagement is top of mind for everyone these days — the research clearly shows its incredible impact on companies’ bottom lines.

Employee Engagement's effect on the bottom line

So why are all your employee engagement ideas failing?

Adrift in the ocean of HR budgets, companies have heard the siren song of employee engagement. They’re investing in programs aimed at boosting engagement, only to see them crash.

Corporate Wellness: 85% of companies have invested in wellness programs, but only 24% of employees participate. (Gallup)

Employee Recognition: Many managers feel they’re investing enough time in recognition, but 82% of employees don’t feel they’re recognized by their managers. (Harvard Business Review)

Employee Retention: Despite having a wealth of research and suggestions on retention, turnover is still costing companies $11 billion each year. (Dale Carnegie)
 

If you want to see ROI, It’s time to mix it up.

That’s the recommendation from a new employment trends survey, and it’s great news for anyone steering the ship for HR budgets — rather than scrapping your existing, stand-alone employee engagement ideas, simply find a solution that allows you to incorporate a mix of approaches.
