The Complacency Effect: Despite Disengagement, Employees Plan to Stay at Their Jobs
July 12, 2019 | Achievers
A recent employee engagement survey by Achievers asked 1,224 employees from the U.S., Canada, UK, and Australia if they plan on looking for new jobs in 2019. The results were jarring: only 21% of North American employees are very engaged, yet most are not looking to leave their jobs. While this may seem like a positive trend, it actually indicates a major workplace complacency conundrum – one that could have a significantly negative effect on your bottom line.
This report will explain the dangers of complacency in the workplace and share four target areas to address employee engagement, arguably one of the most critical business challenges.
Work-life balance is one of those buzzwords that’s been around long enough to take on quite the range of meaning and interpretation, so focusing on the newest sense of balance could make or break employee engagement within the company, as well as the organizational wins up for grabs now and in the future.
Discover why employee engagement in an optimized workplace occurs when people do their best work when they can just be, and why recognition in an optimized workplace is a moving target, and easy to hit when people and patterns are understood.
