A significant difference between how disengaged employees feel about their bosses vs. engaged employees, across all industries, was discovered in a recent HR Solutions research study.
“Employee Engagement Survey” results revealed disengaged employees registered 56 percentage points lower than engaged employees on the following survey items:
- My supervisor supports employee suggestions that are meant to correct existing problems. (Engaged employees, 88 percent favorable; disengaged employees, 32 percent favorable)
- My supervisor makes people in our work group feel that they are a valued and important part of the team. (Engaged employees, 88 percent favorable; disengaged employees, 32 percent favorable)
The second most significant gap was found when employees were asked whether they find their supervisor friendly and helpful. Disengaged employees only scored 40 percent favorable compared to a high of 90 percent favorable for engaged employees.

Murat Philippe, principal consultant, with HR Solutions stated: “These scores underscore the importance of the immediate supervisor in engaging the workforce. A supervisor’s chances of having productive, engaged employees can hinge on whether the employees feel valued and empowered.”
