Employee engagement is a major problem in many organizations. According to a global survey cited by Forbes, “less than one quarter of employees are highly engaged and 39% are moderately engaged. Low levels of engagement among employees contributes to decreased customer satisfaction, slower revenue growth, high turnover, high absenteeism rates, and a myriad of other issues that negatively impact day-to-day operations as well as the bottom line.
Unfortunately, there is a missed opportunity for organizations to leverage their leaders to boost engagement. There are many reasons why employee engagement might be low. However, one of the biggest issues is leadership. As noted in a Business Insider article, “people don’t leave jobs; they leave managers.” The behaviors and actions of those in leadership positions have a direct impact on employee engagement.
