Does Your Organization Measure ROI on Employee Engagement?

This question and many more were asked in a recent study done by management consulting firm, DecisionWise.

“In the study we get a comprehensive look at employee engagement best practices from over 200 organizations around the world,” said Charles Rogel, Vice President of Products and Marketing.

The study provides insight into over 20 different employee engagement topics including ROI. If you’ve participated in, or created, an employee engagement initiative within your organization, have you measured its ROI? I’m sure you asked the question, does employee engagement really work? Did you ever wonder what the return on investment was on that employee engagement initiative? This study asked human resources executives and decision makers in over 200 organizations these questions and more finding out that, only 9% of companies measure the ROI of their employee engagement programs. So is it worth investing in employee engagement initiatives? Only 27% of organizations believe that their programs, to improve employee engagement, have produced the ROI they hoped for.

    I’m responding with the classic definition of engagement which is a combination of cognitive identity (I share the same values that my organization espouses) and discretionary effort (willingness to go above and beyond). Engagement isn’t an end result. It’s a means to better performance. It has a cost associated with it. It needs to be directed. You can engage people in taking the customer experience higher. You can engage them in terrorist activity. ROI means for what you spent to engage people, you got an acceptable return. Using engagement techniques, I spent $1,000 to get this team to reduce $4,000 in scrap or rework. That may or may not be an acceptable ROI depending on the organization. But that’s what engagement ROI is technically and operationally. There’s a white paper on my website: http://www.jimshaffergroup.com under free stuff. It’s called “Straight Talk abut Employee Engagement.” I was one of the original folks who studied this in the late nineties.

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
