5 KPIs To Track Employee Engagement
Employee recognition, service anniversary awards, safety incentives and more.
Employee Engagement is critical to the success of all businesses, but it is especially important to those companies within the energy/utilities industry. When employees in this sector are not actively engaged, fines are levied, injuries occur, and employees & customers can lose their lives.
Sadly, energy employees are among the least engaged workers in the nation, ranking 11% less engaged than the national average. That’s pretty terrifying when you take into account that only 33% of the U.S. workforce is actively engaged.
In today’s article, we’ll take a closer look at what this means for energy companies in the U.S. From unnecessary injuries to increased fatalities, the impact can be devastating. Luckily, there is something you can do about it!
In 2017, it seems like everyone is talking about the power of Employee Engagement – and there’s good reason to do so. When your employees are engaged, your organization can achieve results you never thought possible. I won’t bore you with the statistics now (that will come later), but suffice it to say that study after study has found engaged employees lead to safer, more profitable workplaces.
What you don’t hear so much about is what happens when your employees are disengaged. The impact is just as great as having an engaged team, but the consequences can be – and often are – devastating. In today’s post, we’ll take a closer look at the cost of disengaged employees, how you can identify who they are, and – most importantly -- how you can help them.
Let’s get started!
When it comes to the battle of the sexes, it looks like women are winning – especially in regards to workplace engagement. A new study finds that females, on average, are far more engaged at their jobs than their male counterparts. Further, teams who report to female managers are also noticeably more engaged than those who work for males.
It’s no secret that engaged employees have a tremendous impact on the success of a company. Numerous studies conducted over the past two decades have conclusively proven that engaged employees lead to higher productivity, lower turnover rates and larger profits. But, have you ever wondered how much disengaged employees are costing their companies?
The answer may suprise you. From lowering employee morale to massively reducing productivity, a disengaged employee can quickly destroy an entire company.
