2004 Corporate Executive Board4Driving Performance and Retention Through Employee EngagementDriving Performance and RetentionThrough Employee EngagementTop 10 Findings1. The Corporate Leadership Council has completed a global study of the engagement level of 50,000employees around the world, based on a new, more precise definition of engagement and its direct impacton both employee performance and retention.2. Those employees who are most committed perform 20% better and are 87% less likely to leave theorganization—indicating the significance of engagement to organizational performance.3. While the majority of employees are neither highly committed nor uncommitted, more than 1 in 10employees are fully disengaged—actively opposed to something or someone in their organizations.4. There is no high-engagement or low-engagement “group”—commonly used segmentation techniquesbased on tenure, gender, or function do not predict engagement.5. Instead, dramatic differences between companies suggest that engagement levels are determined more bycompany strategies and policies than any characteristics regarding the employee segments themselves.6. An analysis of both rational and emotional forms of engagement reveals that emotional engagement is fourtimes more valuable than rational engagement in driving employee effort.7.Employee retention, on the other hand, depends more on a balance between rational and emotionalengagement—as illustrated by the importance of compensation and benefits in driving employees’ intentto stay.8. While employees’ commitment to their manager is crucial to engagement, the manager is most importantas the enabler of employees’ commitment to their jobs, organizations, and teams.9. Among the top 25 drivers of employee engagement identified by the Council, the most important driveris a connection between an employee’s job and organizational strategy.10. To create and sustain a high-engagement workforce, best practice organizations effectively manage fourcritical leverage points: Leverage Point #1: Business RisksLeverage Point #2: Key ContributorsLeverage Point #3: Engagement BarriersLeverage Point #4: CultureThe Corporate Leadership Council Engagement Survey and Analysis Tool (CLC ESAT) allowsCouncil members to survey their staff and receive an automated report defining their levels of engagement.Available at www.corporateleadershipcouncil.comSource: Corporate Leadership Council research.

2004 Corporate Executive BoardExecutive Summary5Finding #1: The Corporate Leadership Council presents a new outcome-focusedmodel of engagement.The Corporate Leadership Council presents a new model of employee engagement emphasizingbusiness outcomes. The Council defines engagement as the extent to which employees commit tosomething or someone in their organization, how hard they work, and how long they stay as a resultof that commitment. By using this outcomes-focused definition, we can measure the tangible benefitsof engagement, as opposed to focusing on “engagement for engagement’s sake.”The Corporate LeadershipCouncil’s Model of EngagementEngagementdrivers determine rationaland emotional commitment Rational Commitment* Team Manager Organization which in turn lead to resulting in improvedeffort and intent to stay performance and retentionDiscretionary EffortPerformanceIntent to StayRetentionEngagement DriversEmotional Commitment Job Team Manager OrganizationCLC’s Employee Engagement Survey 50,000 employees 10 industries* Rational commitment to the job was not measured due to itssimilarity to rational commitment to the team, direct manager,and organization. 59 Organizations 27 countriesSource: Corporate Leadership Council research.

2004 Corporate Executive BoardExecutive Summary7Finding #3: More than 1 in 10 employees are fully disengaged.While 11% of employees (the “True Believers”) demonstrate very strong commitment, 13% (the”Disaffected”) are actively opposed to someone or something in their organizations. The real opportunity lieswith the middle 76% of employees (the “Agnostics”) who are only modestly committed.The State of Workforce EngagementBased on a sample of 50,000 employees surveyed in 2004The “Disaffected”The “Agnostics”The “True sCharacteristics Exhibit very littlecommitment Exhibit moderatecommitment Exhibit very strongcommitment Poorer performerswho frequently put inminimal effort Employees neither goto great lengths in theirjobs nor do they shirktheir work Higher performers whofrequently help otherswith heavy workloads,volunteer for otherduties, and are constantlylooking for ways to dotheir jobs more effectively Four times morelikely to leave theorganization than theaverage employee Significant variation inintent to leave Half as likely to leavethe organization as theaverage employeeSource: Corporate Leadership Council 2004 Employee Engagement Survey.

2004 Corporate Executive Board8Driving Performance and Retention Through Employee EngagementFinding #4: There is no high-engagement or low-engagement “group.”There is no demographic group whose engagement is always high or always low. Rather, employeeengagement is a characteristic not of groups but of individual people to be won or lost, improved ordiminished, by their organization.No Easy Litmus TestsQuick “rules of thumb” will prove inadequate as a meansof identifying the committed and uncommittedGeneration X “Slackers”?12.0%Single Parents with Children?11.7%12.0%10.6%Percentageof Employeeswith Highest 6.0%CommitmentLevels10.8%11.4%Percentageof Employeeswith Highest 6.0%CommitmentLevels0.0%0.0%EmployeesOver 40EmployeesUnder 40SingleParentswith ThreeChildrenSinglePeoplewith NoChildren“Overworked” Managers?12.0%10.8%9.9%Percentageof Employeeswith Lowest kingFewer ThanMore Than60 Hours per 60 Hours perWeekWeekSource: Corporate Leadership Council 2004 Employee Engagement Survey.

2004 Corporate Executive BoardExecutive Summary9Finding #5: Dramatic differences exist in engagement levels between companies.While minimal differences in engagement exist across demographic segments, dramatic differencesexist across organizations.

2004 Corporate Executive Board10Driving Performance and Retention Through Employee EngagementFinding #6: Emotional engagement is four times more valuable than rational engagement indriving employee effort.Employees stay with their organizations when they believe it is in their self-interest, but they exertdiscretionary effort when they believe in the value of their job, their team, or their organization. In fact,emotional commitment is four times as valuable as rational commitment in increasing effort levels.Performance Dependson the Heart Over the MindEmployees try (or don’t try) as a result of emotionalcommitment, not rational commitmentMaximum Impact of Commitment Type on Discretionary Effort1A strong emotional commitment toone’s job and organization has thegreatest impact on discretionary effort.Emotional Commitment 2Rational Commitment55.9%43.2%The impact of rational commitmentis much smaller.38.9%34.0%Change mentto theJob1EmotionalCommitmentto theOrganizationEmotionalCommitmentto theTeamEmotionalCommitmentto theManagerCouncil research demonstrates that increased discretionary effort is a directpredictor of improved performance.2Emotional commitment is defined as the extent to which employees derivepride, enjoyment, inspiration, or meaning from something or someone inthe organization.

2004 Corporate Executive BoardExecutive Summary11Finding #7: Compensation and benefits matter more to retention than effort.While competitive compensation and benefits packages are crucial to attract and retain talent, other drivers ofengagement are far more effective in driving discretionary effort.The Impact of Compensation and BenefitsCompensation has a much larger impact on retention than on performanceMaximum Impact on Discretionary Effort and RetentionDue to Satisfaction with Total Compensation Package*Increasing satisfaction withtotal compensation providesup to a 21% increase inemployees’ intent to stay butonly a 9% increase in effort.21.1%Change inDiscretionaryEffort orImprovementin Intent toStay9.1%Intent to Stay* Each bar represents a statistical estimate of the maximum totalimpact on discretionary effort or intent to stay each lever willproduce through its impact on rational and emotional commitment.The maximum total impact is calculated by comparing two statisticalestimates: the predicted discretionary effort or intent to stay foran employee who scores “high” on the lever and the predicteddiscretionary effort or intent to stay for an employee who scores“low” on the lever.

2004 Corporate Executive Board12Driving Performance and Retention Through Employee EngagementFinding #8: The manager is most important as the enabler of employees’ commitment to theirjobs, organizations, and teams.While commitment to the manager is often pointed out as the key driver of engagement, Councilresearch finds, surprisingly, that the manager actually plays a more important role as enabler of employeecommitment to the job and organization.Manager as Conduit for What MattersManagers enable other, more valuable, forms of commitmentImpact of Highest-Scoring Manager Activities and Attributes on Commitment Foci*ManagerActivities andAttributesEmotional Commitmentto Manager73%Emotional Commitmentto Team47%Emotional Commitmentto Organization38%Emotional Commitmentto Job34%A Means, Not an EndThough commitment to the manager is not itself the most powerful driver of effort,the manager has tremendous impact on employees’ level of commitment to the team,organization, and job.* Each value represents a statistical estimate of the maximum total impacton emotional commitment to the manager, team, organization, or jobas a result of the highest-scoring manager attribute.
