EXCLUSIVE: A fifth of organisations do not measure employee engagement

EXCLUSIVE: The proportion of organisations that do not measure their employee engagement levels has remained much the same since 2018, dropping only two percentage points, according to research by Employee Benefits.

The Benefits research 2019, which surveyed 290 HR decision-makers and was published in May 2019, also found that of the 20% that do not measure engagement, the proportion that plan to begin doing so has grown from 46% in 2018 to 55% this year, suggesting an increased awareness of the importance of gauging staff satisfaction.

Among those that do measure engagement, pulse-style research is growing in popularity, being used by 31% of respondents, which is an improvement of 13 percentage points since last year.

However, annual surveys have not dipped in popularity, and continue to be the most widely used method by a large distance, with three in five respondents using them.
