Video: Addressing the employee engagement gap

We have a near 50-point employee engagement gap. Almost three-quarters of business leaders surveyed by Harvard Business Review said that employee engagement was critical to their long-term success. But only 24% of the same leaders described their workforce as highly engaged.

Gallup has been measuring employee engagement for nearly two decades. Only 30% of people are engaged at work and it is rising at less than one percentage point per year. At this rate, it will take almost 50 years to bridge the gap between what executives say they need and what is actually happening today in their organisations.
