How Successful Is Your Employee Engagement?

…HR ideas from Jeffery Giesener – CEO –

Engagement is now one of the most critical challenges we’re facing in HR

Have you gauged your company’s employee engagement recently? How high is it? Gallup Research says companies who rank in the top 25% for employee engagement have much higher productivity (21%) and profitability (22%) than low-ranking companies.

Since engagement is so critical, why does our Industry have a massive gulf between KNOWING employee engagement and actually ACHIEVING it?

As Gallup puts it, 7 out of 10 employees are either “not engaged” or “actively disengaged.” That’s a problem that negatively affects a company’s short and long-term performance every day.

If we are not getting this right with our employees, imagine how your top-tier candidates feel about your recruiting engagement?

  • Are you communicating with your candidates by letting them know that their application was received?
  • Once a position is filled, how are you engaging with candidates beyond the simple “thanks for your application but the job is filled” email?
  • Are you communicating with your candidates around skill-based topics in a scheduled and frequent manner?
  • Do you have a Talent Community and if so how are you nurturing your various and distinctively different audiences with appropriate messaging?

Now onto Mobile…

Did you know Google indicates more than 70% of jobs searches are now done on a mobile platform?

Did you know that without a mobile apply platform you could be loosing 40-90% of your candidate applies? (source

Do you have a mobile-enabled Career Portal?

Do you enable candidates to apply through their mobile Tablets and smartphones?
