Low employee engagement has a price: an estimated $450 billion to $550 billion in the U.S., per year.

To keep your employees engaged, do you know what they really want from your organization?

You can, and it pays to find out. The return on increased engagement is solid. A Gallup study shows that companies in the top quartile for employee engagement outperform their competitors in the lowest quartile in many categories, including:

  • 10% higher customer ratings
  • 21% higher profitability
  • 20% higher productivity
  • 24%-59% lower turnover
  • 41% lower absenteeism
  • 40% fewer quality defects

The list goes on. Learning what motivates your workforce is a necessary (and profitable) part of your business.

Key Takeaways

  • To learn how your workforce thinks, first find out how it feels.
  • Pay your people fairly, and pay them well (i.e., accurately and on time).
  • Help employees feel safe by taking HR training seriously, communicating regularly and eliminating benefits-related distractions with an effective employee self-service tool.
  • Recognize and document individual and group contributions. Be specific and consistent in your recognition; nobody ever quit a job for receiving too much praise. Survey your workforce regularly, and always respond to show them you are listening.
  • Remove obstacles to fulfillment, then utilize performance review data to match the right person to the right work.
