Worldwide,only 13% of employees working for an organization are engaged. Employee tenure in enterprise has hit an all-time low, meaning large-scale businesses are finding it hard to attract, engage and retain talent. Research suggests high-potential (HiPo) employees are particularly vulnerable to disengagement in enterprise organizations, with most resigning from their job in 28 months or less, quoting disengagement among the main reasons for their leaving.
Engaging and retaining employees is paramount to business agility. Active people engagement has a direct effect on efficiency, innovation, and ultimately, positive customer experience.
