When it comes to engaged companies versus disengaged companies, there is one critical difference: how they approach employee feedback. Employee communication — from performance reviews to engagement surveys to employee recognition — is the basis for a highly engaged workforce.

The infographic below — created by Quantum Workplace, a company dedicated to providing every organisation with quality engagement tools that guide their next step in making work better every day — shows just how necessary employee communication is in creating a top-notch employee experience and a highly engaged workforce. Some highlights include:

  • The top feedback tools becoming more important to highly engaged companies include performance management programs, recognition programs, and annual employee surveys.
  • Disengaged companies are 15x more likely to never have administered an employee survey, compared to highly engaged companies.
  • Employees whose managers follow up with them following an employee engagement survey are 12x more likely to be engaged the following year.
  • Only 13% of employees receive monthly or quarterly progress updates.
