Employer brand represents who an organization is and what they stand for, setting the stage for the expectations of both current and future employees. For many companies, social media has become a key element in building the employer brand.
The belief in the importance of social media as part of employer brand strategy is nearly universal, with 96 percent of respondents indicating that it is important. However, despite the overwhelming belief that social media is a vital element of an employer’s strategy, there are some doubts over its effectiveness.

The Worker Confidence Index (WCI) in the first quarter of 2019 increased by 3.6 points to 110.7, the highest level since this study’s inception. While three of the four indices that comprise the WCI reported positive results in the first quarter, one index, the Job Security Index reported a quarterly decrease.
On the topic of job stability, the Job Security Index experienced a modest decline, but remains close to the study average. Worker perceptions about the likelihood of a raise increased to an all time high of 113.3. Both males and females continued to feel more confident about getting a raise, with 36.5 percent of males and 25.8 percent of females anticipating a raise of 3 percent at their next review.
Study uncovers what conditions at work are most likely to attract and keep workers:
- Sixteen percent of employees around the world consider themselves fully engaged, revealing 84 percent of the global workforce is not working at its full potential.
- Biggest driver of engagement is whether you work on a team: Employees who identify as part of a team are 2.3 times more likely to be fully engaged.
- Trust is a foundation of engagement: Employees who trust their team leader are 12 times more likely to be fully engaged in their work.
- The United Arab Emirates has the highest percentage of fully engaged workers at 26 percent, while China has the lowest with just 6 percent. Engagement in the United States sits at 17 percent.
Roseland, NJ – June 14, 2019 – As organizations strive to better understand the art of employee engagement in a highly competitive labor market, the ADP Research Institute’s 19-country Global Study of Engagement provides a global benchmark for engagement. The study reveals that 84 percent of workers globally are just “coming to work” instead of contributing all they could to their organizations as “fully engaged” employees.
The study surveyed more than 19,000 employees (1,000 per country in a stratified random sample) around the globe to measure their level of engagement and identify the work conditions most likely to attract and retain talent. The research indicates that working on a team improves engagement. In fact, employees who identify as part of a team are 2.3 times more likely to be fully engaged. However, “teams” are often not the same as what is reflected on the organizational chart. Of those employees who work on a team, 64 percent report they work on more than one team, and 75 percent report their teams are not represented in their employer’s organizational chart.
The rate of new technologies being developed and the number of companies providing them are exponentially increasing each year and the first quarter of 2019 was no exception.
In total, there were 68 major announcements documented, which almost doubles the 36 announced in the first quarter of 2018. The majority of the announcements were from companies located in the United States, and most were from small or start-up organizations.
