Collective employee engagement is highly correlated with overall stock market performance according to Quantum Workplace, the research firm behind 40 Best Places To Work programs. “The link between overall employee engagement and stock market performance is interesting – but there’s growing evidence that engagement acts as a leading indicator.”

The firm aggregated survey data from approximately 5,000 US firms to create a composite score representing collective employee engagement. They plotted this score over time compared to the Dow Jones Industrial Average. “It’s not surprising to us. We believe getting your people engaged is the single biggest lever in any organization to drive performance. But we’re getting closer all the time to proving it conclusively.”

This finding was published in Quantum Workplace’s annual Employee Engagement Trends report. Each year, Quantum Workplace compiles the data they collect through Best Places To Work programs in many of United States’ largest cities. Analysts then comb the data for the biggest trends in employee perceptions.
