Infographic: Only 13 percent of employees are engaged in their work

Organizations need to raise that percentage, not just for the sake of their employees, but for their bottom lines.

Only 13 percent of employees around the world are engaged at work, an infographic from The Henry Miller Group reports.

The statistics for the United States aren’t much better: Only 30 percent of U.S. workers are engaged in their jobs.

When only a fraction of the workforce is interested in or motivated by their work, something needs to change. And not just for employees’ sakes—organizations benefit financially when their employees’ engagement is high.

The infographic explains that when employee engagement goes up, some of the changes organizations experience include:

  • Higher innovation
  • Revenue growth
  • Reduced turnover
  • Gains in share price
  • Attraction of new talent
