The Shortcomings of Employee Engagement Surveys: How to Properly Assess Your Company Culture


Business leaders across all industries are beginning to realize the necessity of examining their company culture and its impact on their business. A highperforming workplace culture today is not only a competitive advantage for talent recruiting and retention, but it’s also a means for influencing the way consumers, suppliers, and partners choose who to do business with. For decades, companies have poured time, money, and energy into employee engagement surveys—looking to, and relying on, their reactive, static, and bottom-up results as the catalyst for a thriving company culture, only to come up short.

It’s time for a better solution.

In this eBook, you’ll learn about the trends of employee disengagement in the United States, the shortcomings of employee engagement surveys, and the methodology companies should implement right now to overcome the challenges of successfully implementing, improving, and sustaining a company culture that optimizes both the employee experience and business performance.

Section 1

Disengaged employees cost U.S. companies a staggering amount each year.

With a third of U.S. employees disengaged in their job, companies spend between $450 billion and $550 billion each year trying to gauge and improve engagement, according to a recent study.*

The study also found that employees assume most engagement initiatives should come from leadership. Compelling missions, highly trusted relationships, and well-designed jobs were all listed as elements that help employees take more responsibility for engagement.
