When it comes to overall levels of employee engagement, some sectors fare better than others. How does your industry perform in this area?
At the other end of the scale, the transportation & storage, manufacturing, and business services industries experience engagement levels below average.
This data comes from the 2015 Employee Engagement Survey by EON Consulting & Training which surveyed around 400 employees in Singapore.
The survey also found that Millennial workers felt a lot less engaged overall. In fact, these levels were 12.5% below average across all industries.
“Employers need a more inclusive and comprehensive engagement strategy when it comes to managing a multigenerational workforce,” said William Thien, lead consultant of EON Consulting & Training.
The report also contained more positive results. In particular, Singapore firms were successfully driving engagement in three key areas:
- Belief in the organisation and its culture
- Meaningfulness and challenge of the job
- Organisational support and leadership
“Lack of involvement in day-to-day decisions, which has a positive correlation, is a key contributing factor to lower overall engagement [levels],” the report said.
