Only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged at work, according to Gallup’s new 142-country study on the State of the Global Workplace. In other words, about only one in eight workers are emotionally vested in their jobs and likely to be making positive contributions to their organizations.
In the United States, the engagement is purported to be higher, approximately 30%, however this number still signals major room for improvement.
If your company is losing its competitive edge, one of the first areas of improvement can come from taking action to re-engage employees.

Ensure everyone understand the company strategy and priorities and how what they do contribute
Hire the right people (this point will be further examined in another blog)
Get each manager to be vested in the well-being of their direct reports
Instill transparency and frequency around goals, metrics and actual results
