Nearly 70% of employees are not actively engaged in their work.

A recent Gallup State of the American Workplace Report indicated a disturbing trend: nearly 70% of employees were not actively engaged in their work. Quantum Workplace surveyed 75,000 employees across the U.S. and discovered that within the healthcare industry, you’ll find some of the most disengaged employees in the nation. 

Specifically, after profiling 17 industries, healthcare ended up in last place for engagement. What does this mean in terms of money? According to an ADP study, approximately $2,246 per disengaged employee. The total economic impact is an alarming $450 billion to $550 billion in the U.S., per year (Paycom).

Why it’s important

It is important we address this issue, because for healthcare organizations, medical staffing is only as successful as their ability to engage and retain the best healthcare professionals. To achieve this end, organizations must be consistently vigilant of their employees’ needs and develop talent carefully to keep employees engaged and committed to their job. By deploying a digital workforce experience platform, companies can engage their workforce with experiences that truly matter to them. The result is the opposite effect of what disengaged employees cause:

1 – Improved customer service and patient outcomes

2 – Decreased turnover rates and vacancy numbers

3 – Improved access to quality healthcare
