Hiring the Right Managers is Critical for Employee Engagement

July 16, 2013

Gallup’s latest  employee engagement  survey reveals that  only 30%  of American workers  are engaged and inspired at work, and 20% are actively disengaged, meaning that they are verbalizing  and acting on their discontent.  The cause:  bosses that make their lives miserable.  The other 50% are  more passively  disengaged.

The top 25% of teams – the ones who are best managed, have 50% fewer accidents and 41% fewer defects than the bottom 25%  of teams.  These top teams also have lower healthcare costs.  These statistics are staggering in their implications for employers, productivity and company revenues and profits, and emphasize the critical need to put the right people into management positions.
