Are Your Employees Feeling the Love?

It’s Valentine’s Day!

Are your employees feeling the love from their employer?

By Susan Peahl, Sr. Talent Development Specialist and OD Consultant for EHR


Employee engagement plays a critical role in the productivity of your workplace. Here are a few engagement statistics that may surprise you:

  • Gallup research shows that engagement has remained flat for 18 years; 70-75% of all workforce is disengaged!
  • Out of that group, around 18% are Actively Disengaged, which means approximately 52% of all workforce has ‘Quit & Stay Syndrome’. They have quit in their minds but are still coming to work for you.
  • 30% of the salary you pay them goes down the drain due to disengagement and lost productivity
  • The cost of turnover ranges from 50-400% of their salary (depending on their level and impact to the organization)

What can you do to turn this around and get employees feeling great about their organization? Require your managers and supervisors to hold Stay Interviews; engagement conversations that are not performance management conversations but where the manager asks and listens to the employees needs and ideas. Then, together, the manager and employee make a realistic action plan (Stay Plan) to help that employee feel happier about working at your organization. Happy and engaged employees are productive employees!
