2020 saw the rise of employee engagement as a key business objective. The global pandemic shifted workplace dynamics and heightened anxieties, which drove employees to become more concerned and engaged with workplace culture and benefit offerings. As of March 2020, employee engagement was the highest it had been in more than 12 years (68%).
Experts observed a similar uptick in workplace engagement following the wake of the 2008/2009 financial crisis. When large-scale economic or labor changes occur, employee engagement peaks as employers work to meet the unique challenges of their workforce. Unfortunately, following such engagement highs, experts say equal (and sometimes stronger) drops can occur.
