Employee Engagement Results in Better Retention

Six in 10 employees are "quiet quitting"; can better engagement turn that around?

  • Employee engagement has strong connection to performance outcomes.
  • Best-run organizations have high level of engagement (72%).
  • Employees who work entirely remotely (30%) are more engaged than fully in-person (21%) and hybrid (24%) employees.
  • Employee stress has increased, which highlights the importance of employers addressing well-being.
  • Having one short but meaningful conversation with each employee once per week that focuses on recognition, collaboration, goals, priorities, and strengths can improve engagement.
