The most successful businesses are rooted in an engaged workforce, where employees are valued for their contributions. It seems simple, yet many companies are missing the mark when it comes to connecting their employees with core engagement factors like their company’s mission, their experience of recognition at work, and their workplace culture. This is the "greatness gap" that many employers are dealing with today. HR and business leaders work hard to create a company mission and vision, craft a culture statement, and roll out employee recognition programs ... yet something's still not clicking. That's why we decided to survey hundreds of full-time employees throughout North America to determine how engaged they feel at work, how often they get recognized, and whether they feel aligned with their company's mission. The results were pretty shocking -- and we've highlighted some of the biggest stats below. We encourage you to get the rest of our employee engagement insights by downloading the full Achievers 2015 North American workforce survey results right here.
