Study Explores Drivers of Employee Engagement

Study Explores Drivers of Employee Engagement | Innovative Human Resources Initiatives | Scoop.it

A recent study by MSW Research and Dale Carnegie Training explores  key drivers of employee engagement – and reaffirms the critical role of an employee’s relationship with his or her direct manager. Employee engagement is important because “engaged employees” are more committed and productive.  The study, What Drives Employee Engagement and Why It Matters, also has some disturbing findings, noting that “only 29% of employees are fully engaged while 26% are disengaged.”

Presenteeism comes to mind when considering how many disengaged employees are serving as seat fillers in the office.

Employees Don't Have Time For Wellness Initiatives - REPORT - Forbes

Employees Don't Have Time For Wellness Initiatives - REPORT - Forbes | Innovative Human Resources Initiatives | Scoop.it
A new report shows that many employees feel they don't have time for company wellness programs, or that they're no fun.

Jenny Veach Harding's insight:

My experience is that some components of the programs need to be masked as something else. Offer subsidized or free healthy food options in your break rooms, order in healthy lunches (not just pizza), encourage physical activites like a company sports league.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, April 3, 2013 3:15 PM

Wellness programs are a wonderful concept, but companies have to allow the time for their employees to take advantage of the service.

 

From the article:

 

Wellness programs in the workplace are no good to those who don’t have time to take part. According to GCC, trying to feel better – through exercise, distressing or nutrition – has to be an integral part of a company in order for it to have a place in the work day.

 

It has to be part of the culture. Workers can’t feel they have to break free of their schedules to take time to feel better; it has to be part of their schedules.
