Employee Engagement Levels Increased in 2010

Chicago-based Human Capital consulting form HR Solutions International, Inc. recently released its 2010 Overall Employee Engagement Norms, finding that Employee Engagement levels increased from 2009 to 2010. The normative data is comprised of survey responses from more than 3.3 million employees at over 2,400 organizations. The number of Actively Engaged employees increased two percentage points, from 25% in 2009 to 27% in 2010. During this same time period, the percent of Ambivalent employees (neither engaged nor disengaged) increased slightly, from 59% to 60%, while the percentage of Actively Disengaged employees declined (from 16& to 13&). “The fact that Employee Engagement levels increased during these turbulent times is quite interesting,” says Chris Dustin, Executive Vice President of Sales and Consulting at HR Solutions. “The recession caused many employees to be grateful for simply having a job, which resulted in a heightened intent to stay. The new norms also indicate that companies did a commendable job communicating and navigating the economic downturn by outlining their strategic vision for the future.” To review a copy of the report, go to www.hrsolutionsinc.com
