You’ve heard it a million times already. Most employees are not engaged at work.
Don’t believe it? I do.
Gallup’s research says only 31.5% are engaged.
And an exclusive ResourcefulManager survey of 2,107 managers and executives provides a big hint as to why.
According to our survey, 42% of managers don’t meet with their direct reports one-on-one at least weekly.
Here’s the breakdown:
- 58% meet at least once a week
- 13.8% meet every two weeks
- 15.3% meet once a month
- 6.1% meet once a quarter
The remaining 7% are scattered throughout the rest of the year – if at all.
So you shouldn’t be surprised by why so many employees are disengaged.
