Why is engagement important?
Disengaged employees cost an organization approximately $3,400 for every $10,000 in
annual salary—and the American economy up to $350 billion per year due to lost productivity,
according to McLean & Company research.
“Organizations with an average of 9.3 engaged employees for every actively disengaged
employee in 2010-2011 experienced 147 percent higher earnings per share (EPS) compared
with their competition in 2011-2012,” the 2013 Gallup “State of the American Workplace”
survey noted. “In contrast, those with an average of 2.6 engaged employees for every actively
disengaged employee experienced 2 percent lower EPS compared with their competition
during that same time period.”
organizations with engaged employees make more money than others, have less turnover, and experience
less absenteeism, according to gallup.
