What’s Keeping Employees from being Engaged?

What’s Keeping Employees from being Engaged?

Career Partners International, (CPI) one of the largest career management firms in the world, offers expertise in engaging employees. CPI’S Philadelphia firm, CCI Consulting, has developed research on employee engagement. The firm gathered this data from their Global Employee Engagement Survey over the past two years.

The engagement level of an organization’s employees directly impacts important business outcomes such as profit and retention. Results from CCI Consulting’s Global Employee Engagement surveys revealed three areas that are keeping employees from going the extra mile at work: recognition, growth, and management. Employees across multiple industries, functions, and job levels consistently showed frustrations with these three areas.

Many employees do not feel they receive the appropriate recognition for their good performance. They are not effectively rewarded in a way that motivates them to continue to perform well. Working towards a clear career growth plan is desirable to many employees. However, most felt that they did not have a clear plan for advancement because of lack of support from management when they expressed an interest in promotional opportunities. This lack of support ties into the fact that most employees feel that the management team is not fully “in touch” with employees, causing a disconnect that leaves employees with a lack of trust in management.

Lack of Recognition

Employees do not feel that good performance is recognized and effectively rewarded to motivate employees.

Limited Growth

Having a clear path for career advancement is important to employees but many feel that they do not have the potential for growth.

Poor Leadership

Many employees do not believe the Management Team is “in touch” with or connected to employees.
