Employee engagement continues to be a top concern for HR leaders and executives around the world. This phenomenon is deeply embedded in the collective consciousness of most organisations.
Studies and surveys on how to better engage employees are still being conducted and researchers and academics are interested in improving employee engagement.
Despite these efforts and huge investment in this area, the reality is that most employees remain disengaged globally.
Gallup reported in January 2016 that only 32 per cent of US employees were engaged, with the worldwide figure being a dismal 13 per cent.
That leads us to think that engaging workers can’t be easy. At first, and particularly during the interview, everyone seems so engaged that the recruiter thinks they have found the one. But then the excitement fades and even the most hard-working and engaged employees disconnect.
Keeping an employee engaged demands a lot of consistent effort. HR leaders need to put that at the top of their priorities and start thinking about how to create a work environment that meets their employees’ needs.
There are several key ways to make employees feel respected and valued and to keep them engaged. We have put together a mini guide to employee engagement based on our experience, our employees’ feedback and trusted surveys.
Our guide shows companies what they should keep in mind when trying to improve employee engagement and includes some tips and tricks on how to do this.

When, and if, employee engagement is taken seriously, then individual performance will have a positive effect on the performance of the business overall. This is how everyone in the organisation can move forward.
By focusing on learning and development, and connecting talent programmes and creating feedback channels, organisations can get a more accurate, real-time measure of employee engagement and performance. They can then use this to close the engagement gap.
