What’s your Passion #15 – Employee Engagement

Reading Time: < 1 minute

W. Edwards Deming is credited with saying,

  • “a bad system will beat a good person every time.” 

Gallup’s US Employee Engagement Survey 2020 (an improvement over 2019 despite the pandemic) reported the following trends:

  • 36% are actively engaged
  • 50% are disengaged
  • 14% are actively disengaged

It is stunning that 64% are either disengaged or actively disengaged. 

The brutal facts, Globally (latest from 2018), are even more alarming:

  • 15% are actively engaged
  • 67% are disengaged
  • 18% are actively disengaged

Is it any wonder, then, that 58% of all Agile efforts and 74% of “hybrid” projects fail? It’s a miracle any company survives with engagement numbers like that.
