Retaining top talent: Engagement is more important than ever
Employee engagement dropped slightly when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, but has since rebounded.
Not surprisingly, when employees feel their work duties are clearly communicated and their efforts are supported and recognized, engagement goes up.
Even with the challenges of a global pandemic and a struggling economy, three out of four employees say they are highly engaged with their work, a new study finds. The report from Quantum Workplace is its
10th annual survey from the company on best practices in the workplace to retain top talent.
The Quantum Workplace report seeks to show how employers find success in attracting, engaging, and retaining top talent. It found that employee engagement dropped slightly when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, but that it rebounded as the nation responded to the crisis. In fact, the survey found the peak of engagement in the spring of 2020 was 11% higher than engagement levels during the same period in 2019.
