Is it time to reassess the strategies we use to motivate employees toward higher levels of productivity and increased corporate loyalty? New data would suggest yes. Most measures of employee engagement incorporate two factors: discretionary effort and intent to stay. But as corporate productivity surges and a stubbornly soft labor market suggests businesses have reduced vulnerability to employee turnover “the numbers inside the engagement numbers” tell a new story—one that runs contrary to the assumed benefit of investing in employee engagement programs. Employees say they are tired and burnt-out and the fear of losing their jobs is no longer a motivator. Today there is a significant risk of voluntary defection—even among engaged employees. As the recovery shows signs of heating up, business that don’t attend to the new engagement imperative—retaining and reinvigorating their best employees—run the risk of lagging behind when the economy begins to heat up again.
