42% of Managers Don’t Do This and It Destroys Employee Engagement

An exclusive ResourcefulManager survey of over 2,107 managers and executives has provided a major window into why only 33.1% of employees are engaged in their roles (Gallup Data).

The survey results indicate at least 42% of upper managers do not meet with their direct reports one-on-one at least once weekly. In fact, 13.8% meet bi-weekly, 15.3% meet once a month, 6.1% meet once a quarter, and 7% met at scattered times throughout the year. That is hardly enough.

Without regular one-on-one meetings, it is impossible for managers to be aware of issues concerning job satisfaction. Sadly, many executives discover such issues too late once the majority of their talented workforce have handed in their notice.

Studies show that employee engagement is only worsening over time. The only way to reverse this downward trend is to open the flow of communication between executives and their reports, however this can’t be achieved without more one-on-one meetings.
