Employee Engagement Survey

Did you know that in the Average Australian workplace that:

How does Australia do in terms of employee engagement

  • 24% of workers are Engaged; motivated employees and likely to exert extra or discretionary effort.
  • 60% of workers are Disengaged; unmotivated staff and unlikely to exert extra effort.
  • 16% of workers are Actively Disengaged; truly unhappy and unproductive employees.

What this means: in the average Australian workplace, over 75% of the workforce is either disengaged or actively disengaged. This means that too few of your workers are engaged and you are not getting the most out of your employees.

World's employee engagement survey

In contrast, and according to studies by Gallup, world’s employee engagement survey best practices are markedly different, where: 

  • 67% of the workers are Engaged;
  • 26% of the workers are Disengaged;
  • 7% of the workers are Actively Disengaged.

This means that by improving employee engagement from average to world’s best practice, you will increase your productivity by 21% and increase your profitability by 22%
