Impact of Engaging Employees

Employees with the highest level of commitment perform 20% better and are 87% less likely to leave the organization which indicates that engagement is linked to organizational performance. In addition, engaged employees have an average cost per safety incident of only $63 compared with an average of $392 for a non-engaged employee. Finally, 62% of engaged employees feel their work positively affects their physical health. This number drops to 39% for the nonengaged employees and only 22% for employees who are disengaged. Finally, 54% of disengaged employees say their work has a negative effect on their health.

These statistics came from a report titled "Leveraging Employee Engagement for Competitive Advantage: HR's Strategic Role" by Nancy R. Lockwood published in March 2007.
