Employee engagement is one of the greatest HR struggles right now. Knowing the wide-spread effects disengaged employees can have on an organization, HR leaders are scrambling to find the elusive solution. Well, we might be able to finally take a giant step in the right direction.

  • Disengaged companies are 15x more likely to never have administered an employee survey, compared to highly engaged companies.
  • 85% of highly engaged organizations surveyed employees in the past year.
  • Employees whose managers follow up with them following a survey are 12x more likely to be engaged the following year than those who don’t experience follow-up.
