Gallup has been at the forefront of helping companies drive employee engagement since publishing the seminal book: First, Break All the Rules: What the Greatest Managers Do Differently in the 1990s. In this keynote video, Larry Emond, Managing Director at Gallup, discusses current state of employee engagement around the world and explains how organizations and managers can drive engagement going forward.
Key insights include:
- The state of employee engagement in the United States and globally — how much progress is actually being made?
- Why organizations that regularly measure engagement have significantly higher engagement scores.
- Gallup’s discovery that manager behavior explains up to 70% of any employee’s engagement.
- Despite the importance of good managers, 82% of the managers in the U.S. are wrong for the job.
