The graphs analyse People Survey scores for the most and least engaged teams from 8,570 government business units, focusing on leadership behaviours. The scores are for survey statements relating to the four enablers of engagement in the Engage for Success framework: strong narrative; engaging managers; employee voice; integrity.
Each graph includes a relatively straight blue line sloping down gently from left to right. This is the engagement index score for the business units listed across the x axis (units are not listed by name, just organisation, to avoid individuals being identifiable). The blue line slopes down as the engagement index scores are shown from highest to lowest.
The engagement scores range from 93% to 12%, as shown on the y axis of the graphs.
Business units’ scores for specific statements in the People Survey are mapped against their engagement index scores to see if there is a correlation between them, i.e. to see to what extent people’s engagement is impacted by a specific statement, if at all.
Please note, there are two types of correlation:
A positive percentage score for the trend on a graph means lines are following the direction of one another whereas a negative score means lines are deviating. Anything with a positive score of 25% or more is a significant trend correlation.
Note in the thrid and fourth graphs how strong both the trend and numeric-value correlations are between the engagement index and the statement the “Organisation keeps me informed about matters that affect me”. Note also how this strength of correlation holds true for the business units with both the highest and lowest engagement scores.
