Engagement in the Workplace

The statistics around employee engagement in North America clearly show that most employees are either not engaged or actively disengaged with only 20% of the Canadian workforce being engaged in the work they perform *. This creates  some sobering and costly consequences in terms of business outcomes and employee wellbeing.

The good news is that when employees report higher levels of engagement there are high positive outcomes that are generated.  Some of these include:

Engagement with Patricia Zeggelaar
  • 37% lower absenteeism
  • 49% lower turnover (low turnover companies)
  • 49% fewer safety incidents
  • 41% fewer patient safety incidents
  • 60% fewer quality incidents/defects
  • 12% higher customer metrics
  • 18% higher productivity
  • 16% higher profitability

Another valuable finding of engagement research is the correlation between engaged employees and personal levels of well being.  Engaged workers report higher overall levels of well being.  Practically this translates into a workforce that has:

  • Less absenteeism
  • More presenteeism
  • Less stress leave
  • Fewer long term disability claims
  • Fewer grievances

At Integrated People Solutions we understand that well being is not just the responsibility of the employee but also the employer by providing a work environment that is conducive to both the physical and emotional wellness of its workers.
