The Most Effective Way To Keep Star Employees From Leaving

There are some very effective ways to keep very good employees from leaving your company. About 30 percent of people are engaged with their jobs fully, when they are doing them. Most employees do the smallest amount of what is required of them and then wait to leave. That is around 50 percent of employees.

Key Takeaways:

  • Gallup has been tracking employee engagement over the past 17 years, and its research reveals that roughly 30 percent of U.S. workers are considered “engaged” in their jobs.
  • They are inspired by, involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their work. These are your star employees, who release discretionary effort because they’re emotionally connected to the job.
  • The majority of employees (roughly 50 percent), in case you’re curious–and you should be, because they are working for you right now–show up to work, watch the clock waiting for lunch and 5:00 p.m. to roll around, kill time, and do the minimum required, with rare extra effort.
