In the average organization one-third of employees are engaged, while in the best organizations the number climbs to 60 percent or more. The low rate of engagement hasn’t budged in more than a decade. Why? Employee engagement surveys and programs are not enough. Higher engagement is rooted in a culture whose language, attitudes and behaviors make people feel connected to one another rather than feel unsupported, left out or alone. Employees in an organization with a high degree of connection are more productive, more engaged, more collaborative, and less likely to leave. In fact, research demonstrates that there is a set of learnable leadership behaviors that can ignite the workforce so individuals do more than survive – they thrive.
