Gallup has studied performance in hundreds of organizations and measured the engagement of 27 million employees and more than 2.5 million work units over the past two decades. Managers account for at least 70% of variance in employee engagement scores across business units, Gallup estimates. This variation is in turn responsible for severely low worldwide employee engagement. Harvard Business Review studies find that particularly senior executives display an unwillingness to think rigorously about innovating their world perspectives and their ideas of how organizations are managed and transformed. Which poses an inbuilt risk for hampering employee commitment to utilize the infinite, risk demanding opportunities of the 4th Industrial Revolution. Worse, over the past 12 years, these low numbers have barely budged, meaning that the vast majority of employees worldwide are failing to develop and contribute at work.
