A study published earlier this year indicates a surprising two percent decline in global employee engagement levels after four years of 2-3 percent annual growth. The study found that globally, only 24% of employees are highly engaged and 39% are moderately engaged. And, a closer look at the results suggests that the conventional wisdom regarding what actually drives employee engagement may no longer be true.
The report attributes the drop in engagement levels from 2015-2016 to anxiety in the workplace provoked by changes in the political landscape that could have significant effects on the job market such as restricting the flow of labor. These anxieties are compounded by employees’ fears about new technologies that can threaten job security. While it is unclear whether the global engagement levels will continue to drop, these stresses present new challenges for company leaders as they increasingly struggle to fill open positions.
