Temkin Group aims to raise employee engagement within organizations
To accelerate the sharing of ideas, Temkin Group will award $1,000 for the top ideas that are submitted on the website. The group will award $250 Amazon.com gift certificates to four people who provide the most innovative ideas for increasing employee engagement. Temkin Group will announce the winners on 28th August, 2015 on the StartWithEmployees website and on the Customer Experience Matters® blog.
"Companies can't consistently deliver great customer experience without engaged employees," states Bruce Temkin, managing partner of Temkin Group. "We want the Engage Employees movement to motivate people to think of fresh new ways to increase employee engagement levels within their organizations."
Temkin Group's research into the activities, behaviors and engagement levels of more than 5,000 U.S. employees shows that:
Compared with disengaged employees, highly engaged employees are 2.5 times as likely to stay at work late if something needs to be done after the normal workday ends, more than twice as likely to help someone at work even if they don't ask for help, more than three times as likely to do something good for the company that is not expected of them, and more than five times as likely to recommend that a friend or relative apply for a job at their company.
77% of employees in companies that have significantly better financial performance than their peers are highly or moderately engaged, compared with only 49% of employees in companies with lagging financial performance.
Companies that outpace their competitors in CX have 50% more engaged employees than those with CX that lags their peers.
Temkin Group encourages people to visit www.StartWithEmployees.com, tweet about employee engagement using the hashtag #EngageEmployees, and participate in the Amplify Empathy Challenge. The site will also provide links to Temkin Group research on employee engagement. Individuals can also download a digital badge from the site if they "Pledge to Engage Employees" in their organizations.
Winners of the Engage Employees Challenge will be selected by Temkin Group based on its evaluation of the ideas submitted on the website.
