Gallup Engagement Statistics

According to Jim Harter in the December 20th, 2017 Gallup State of the Global Workplace report, "Dismal Employee Engagement is a Sign of Global Mismanagement," "85% of employees are not engaged or actively disengaged at work." 


Gallup's statistics indicate that only 15% of employees are engaged! With employees being the soul of the workplace, "the economic consequences are approximately $7 trillion in lost productivity."  This startling statistic indicates it is time for a major change!

What is Employee Engagement?

Employee engagement is when employees have deep emotional commitments to both the company and its goals.  Research shows companies see increased productivity, higher sales, and lower turnover when their employees are engaged. 


Employee experience is the path to get to the outcome of sustained engagement. We must measure and monitor it, so we can learn and make adjustments. This is a continuous journey that we must focus our efforts on, as at any given time, changes will occur and affect the experience of the people.


We have a very effective way to achieve this using the PI Diagnose Survey that helps solve two business issues: Retention and Productivity. It measures people data and provides actionable feedback in terms of how employees experience the following four work areas: 

  • Job Fit 
  • Manager Impact
  • People Teams 
  • Organization Culture
