In this report, we'll share key findings from this partner research project on the connection between employee engagement and performance.
A recent study conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services in association with Quantum Workplace found that 81% of business leaders strongly agree that highly engaged employees perform better and are more productive.
Yet, many engagement and performance strategies are often prioritized and executed in silos, disconnected from each other. This study also found that while two-thirds of survey takers have revamped their approach to performance management in the last two years, only 37% say that employee engagement is a significant area of focus for their own organization today.
Talent-minded organizations believe that high-performing, engaged employees are essential to business success. Many have invested in employee engagement programs and modernized their performance management processes - yet most still struggle to quantify the ROI and business impact of their talent initiatives.
In the latest research from Harvard Business Review Analytic Services in association with Quantum Workplace, you'll discover the solution—that connecting employee engagement and performance is not only important but necessary for employee, team, and business success.
"Engagement equals discretionary effort, which equals higher business outcomes for the same amount of dollars. It is ROI at its finest - the best possible return on investment for your human capital."
