Engaged Vs. Disengaged Employees - How They View Their Boss

Chicago, IL, August 13, 2008 --(PR.com)-- A significant difference between how Disengaged Employees feel about their boss versus Engaged Employees, across all industries, was discovered in a recent HR Solutions’ research study. Employee Engagement Survey results revealed that Disengaged Employees registered 56 percentage points lower than Engaged Employees on the following survey items:

My supervisor supports employee suggestions that are meant to correct existing problems. (Engaged Employees: 88% favorable, Disengaged Employees: 32% favorable)

My supervisor makes people in our work group feel that they are a valued and important part of the team. (Engaged Employees: 88% favorable, Disengaged Employees: 32% favorable)

The second most significant gap was found when employees were asked whether they find their supervisor friendly and helpful. Disengaged Employees only scored 40% favorable compared to a high of 90% favorable for Engaged Employees.

Murat Philippe, Principal Consultant, with HR Solutions states: “These scores underscore the importance of the immediate supervisor in engaging the workforce. A supervisor’s chances of having productive, engaged employees can hinge on whether the employees feel valued and empowered.”
