Reason of reduce work engagement
Since dedicated employees are happier and more productive than dismissed employees, most organizations believe that engagement is a top priority. However, according to a recent report by Gallup, only 32% of American workers are working. Globally, the situation is even worse, because only 13% of workers in the world are working. Despite the best intentions, it seems that the participation efforts of many organizations are not enough. With this in mind, let’s take a look at the common reasons why employee engagement begins to decline, as revealed in our 2017 Employee Engagement Report.
Inequities in the employee compensation system still exist. Preferences and online relationships can play an important role in career success. Just like the concept of “relationship” in China, social networks are very important for establishing connections in organizations. A meta-analysis of the concept of “relationship” by Luo and colleagues (2012) found that social connectivity has an impact on economic and operational performance. Social networks are considered to be powerful tools to help organizations maintain. If they are used in a positive way, they have a competitive advantage and excellent performance. However, the data from these interviews shows that the use of social relationships has a negative impact on participation. Thirty-nine employees claimed that this form of social relations would reduce their motivation and participation. Social relations, in this case, are used to obtain promotions, larger bonuses and other benefits. In the final analysis, the cause of negative working engagement is still based on preference, because it is the top management that makes the final decision.
