Indian cos rank highest in employee engagement: study

The annual WorkTrends report by the research arm of leading global HR solutions provider Kenexa, analysed the importance of leadership and managerial effectiveness to employee engagement and organisational success.

Engaged employees are those, who are more committed towards their company and put in extra effort to help their firm achieve its goals.

"While comparing the country-level employee engagement differences, India is ranked highest (71 per cent) and Japan ranked lowest (38 per cent)," the study revealed.
According to the study, when employees report that they follow effective leaders, the average employee engagement index score is 91 per cent, globally.

"Our findings show that companies with highest level of employee engagement and best leadership will recover from the economic downturn faster and emerge stronger," Kenexa Research Institute Founder and Executive Director Jack W Wiley said.

"The report would enable readers to learn how to gain and sustain competitive advantages through effective leadership," Wiley added.

Factors that drive employee engagement include, leaders who inspire confidence in future managers who recognise employees and emphasise quality and improvement, opportunity to grow and firms showing genuine responsibility to employees and communities.

The study, which covered over 29,000 employees across the world, focused on the engagement and how healthy firms are comprised of well-trained, engaged workers who have the tools they need and are aligned toward common goals.

The countries which were covered in the survey include India, US, UK, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, The Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and some nations in the Gulf Co-op Council.
