61% of workers would quit due to low engagement

A little motivation goes a long way, as more than 6 in 10 (61%) workers interviewed admitted it’s at least somewhat likely they would leave their current position if they felt disengaged. That’s bad news for some employers: More than one-quarter (26%) of professionals said their company is not effective at keeping staff motivated, according to a survey from Office Team.

Workers were asked; “How likely is it that you would leave your current position if you did not feel engaged?” Their responses:

  • Very likely — 24%

  • Somewhat likely — 37%

  • Not very likely — 22%

  • Not likely at all — 16%

  • Don’t know/no answer — 1%

Workers also were asked, “In your opinion, how effective is your company in keeping workers motivated?” Their responses:

  • Very effective — 32%

  • Somewhat effective — 42%

  • Not very effective — 18%

  • Not effective at all — 8%

  • Don’t know/no answer — 1%

“When workers are disengaged, retention shouldn’t be a company’s only concern — productivity and customer service levels also suffer,” said OfficeTeam executive director, Robert Hosking. “There are many factors that contribute to strong employee engagement — chief among them are the ability of staff to reach professional goals and understand how they contribute to the organization’s big-picture objectives.”
