Igniting Employee Engagement:
The Force Awakens

Employee engagement is defined as the willingness to expend discretionary effort to accomplish work tasks. Consistently, national surveys document that within American companies, only 1/3 of the workforce is fully engaged. Collectively, billions of dollars are lost each year due to 2/3 of the workforce doing just enough to accomplish assigned tasks and no more. And added to that, are the 10% of the workforce that are fully disengaged. These employees actively work against the mission and stated goals of the organization.

Nowadays, you can throw a rock in any direction and hit several employee engagement companies, all touting their goods and services that promise to improve your organization’s employee engagement scores. If even a portion of those promises actually came true, when you add up all of their collectively percentage increase you’d have 100% of American companies with 100% fully engaged employees.

Well, that just ain’t the case honey!  So why is that so?  What’s really going on in corporate America?  Why has employee engagement not substantially improved in the last 15 years?  Why has employee engagement never improved, by any large measure, since engagement scores have been tracked?

Come to August’s DFW ODN meeting to find out why the current engagement landscape is what it is, what the real underlying issues are, and how to truly change engagement scores in your organization. Dr. Glen Earl will lead a lively conversation about the whys and why-nots, and how to make true, lasting, and substantial employee engagement change within your organization.
