19 HR and Employee Engagement Statistics You Need to Know

Your business makes or breaks its goals based on employee engagement. But according to Gallup, only 22% of employees are engaged at work. That’s not exactly what you want to hear about your most expensive business investment.

How engaged your employees are can make all the difference in your organization’s attrition rate, level of productivity, and reputation. Plus, don’t you want your employees to enjoy coming to work? (Spoiler: Satisfaction is also a key contributor to engagement and performance.)

To get a better picture of employee engagement today, we’ve compiled data from original BambooHR research to present some of the top employee engagement statistics you should know—plus onboarding and retention statistics that create a holistic view of why employee engagement matters.
