32 Companies That Understand and Live Employee Engagement

By Keri Garman, Market Director, Consulting Practice

It is now commonplace to conduct employee engagement surveys in companies around the world. Many companies approach engagement as an annual event -- they see it as something to list on their website to help with recruiting, or simply as a score they need to improve each year.

The leaders of these companies should remember, though, that when they integrate employee engagement into everything they do, it becomes a powerful tool that drives real business outcomes, things like lower absenteeism, higher productivity, and higher profitability. Concentrating an organization’s efforts on employee engagement isn’t just about creating an engaged workforce, it’s about what that engaged workforce allows your company to do.

Gallup recognizes the exceptional work of organizations each year for their understanding that employee engagement drives real business outcomes, and for mastering how to engage their workforces, by presenting them with the Gallup Great Workplace Award. This year, we would like to recognize 32 distinguished organizations as recipients of the Gallup Great Workplace Award.

Gallup Great Workplace Award winners span the globe and represent all facets of business from healthcare to hospitality, retail to manufacturing, and banks to insurance. These award winners average a ratio of engaged employees to actively disengaged employees that is more than five times the ratio in the U.S. and more than 20 times the ratio of workforces globally.

The 2013 Gallup Great Workplace Award recipients are:

  • ABC Supply Co., Inc. (seven-time winner)
  • Adventist Health System (three-time winner)
  • Alegent Creighton Health (two-time winner)
  • Atlantica Hotels International (five-time winner)
  • Bank of Ayudhya Public Company Limited
  • Bon Secours Health System (two-time winner)
  • Charles Schwab (two-time winner)
  • Cleveland Clinic
  • Compassion International (two-time winner)
  • DBS Bank
  • DTE Energy
  • Fairmont Raffles Hotels International (FRHI) (two-time winner)
  • Fifth Third Bancorp (two-time winner)
  • Hawaii Pacific Health (two-time winner)
  • Hendrick Medical Center (seven-time winner)
  • Henry Ford Health System
  • Hospital for Special Surgery (two-time winner)
  • Hyatt Hotels Corporation (two-time winner)
  • Indian Hotels Company Limited (four-time winner)
  • Intermountain Healthcare (three-time winner)
  • LS travel retail, North America
  • Mars, Inc. (four-time winner)
  • MemorialCare Health System (three-time winner)
  • Nationwide (two-time winner)
  • PNC (five-time winner)
  • Provident Hungary
  • RSA (two-time winner)
  • Self Regional Healthcare (six-time winner)
  • Stryker (six-time winner)
  • Transitions Optical, Inc. (four-time winner)
  • WellStar Health System (two-time winner)
  • Winegardner & Hammons, Inc. (seven-time winner)
Each of the award recipients experienced a quantifiable impact on their key business outcomes as a result of having a more engaged workforce, and they achieved this by integrating engagement into four areas that Gallup has identified as integral to cultivating a workplace culture of engagement:
  • Strategy and Leadership;
  • Accountability and Performance;
  • Communication and Knowledge Management; and
  • Development and Ongoing Learning.
Leaders from many of these world-class organizations will share their best practices for engaging their workforce and maximizing their organization’s performance at the 2013 Gallup Great Workplace Summit.

It seems that many of these lists never include the small to mid-size companies. There are many smaller companies that would make this list. I'm curious what the requirements are to be considered for the list.

Looks like there's an abundance of healthcare organisations. I wonder if there's a link between the type of work they perform and personal satisfaction and engagement?
