With global economic growth creating a new level of competition for talent, 2014 will require organizations to shift focus from merely filling jobs to engaging and retaining employees.
A 2013 Gallup study found that only 13 percent of employees worldwide were engaged, whereas the vast majority of employees were either “not engaged” or “actively disengaged” in the workplace. This means that nearly nine out of 10 workers are either just going through the motions of their daily jobs or they are actively looking for a new job while at their current job. The research further states that engaged employees tend to be significantly more productive, less likely to leave, and deliver better quality work, all of which can all be directly tied to a company’s bottom line.
