Past studies on engagement primarily focus on the positive ways engaged employees can impact a company’s productivity and profits. The Dale Carnegie Training study is different because it is aimed at understanding and indentifying the following three factors that drive employee engagement:• Relationship with Immediate Supervisors• Belief in Senior Leadership• Pride in Working for Their Company The first and most dramatic finding shows that if an employee is dissatisfied with their immediate supervisor, there is an 80% chance that they are disengaged. This statistic reinforces the significance of building positive relationships in the workplace. Similarly, having a “caring” manager is one of the key elements to a positive and successful employee engagement strategy. Employees want to feel valued and have their manager take an interest in their personal lives, health and well-being.
