Engagement Is Low, But Awareness Is Sky-High

The numbers on employee engagement are still pretty bad. But a 2012 report from Deloitte shows that the message is finally getting through about the importance of engagement.

94% of executives and 88% of employees now see workplace culture as important to business success. Better yet, 83% of executives and 84% of employees say that having engaged employees is the top factor contributing to a company’s success!

But when asked about the culture in their own companies, fewer than one in five executives and employees feel that their own workplace culture is healthy. They know it’s important, but they don’t see it around them.

Wherever you are in the company, YOU can start the turnaround. Lift up those around you with positive feedback and enthusiasm. Call it tight on dysfunctional behaviors. Commit to throwing your heart over the bar every day.

It’s contagious! Be the one who leads the way to the healthy culture most people KNOW is so important, and others WILL follow.
