Employee engagement is key to the success of every business model. Companies with highly engaged employees tend to experience reduced absenteeism, improved employee retention, increased profits, elevated customer satisfaction and even higher safety scores. Sadly, a 2013 Gallup study found that 70% of American workers are “not engaged or actively disengaged from their workplaces.” What is driving these worrisome numbers? How can you make sure your organization is creating a culture of engagement?
Recent global and economic events have dramatically changed the workplace. Companies and departments have had to become more flexible; they’ve had to find ways of creatively accomplishing the same or more work with fewer resources. Compounding the issue is the unprecedented new diverse face of the American work force. Leaders find themselves playing mentor, role model and motivator to four generations of workers – sometimes under one roof, sometimes stretched across one or more continents, connected only by fiber-optic cable or wireless signals in the ether. It’s no wonder employees sometimes struggle to understand their place in it all.
The good news is that the answer is simple: Evaluate the ROI – Return on the Individual. Creating a culture that focuses on making sure individuals have both the opportunity and responsibility to understand and take part in your organization’s mission is the key to success. It may sound daunting, but it boils down to five simple steps that can be applied by organizations of all shapes and sizes in any industry. This webinar can provide an understanding of these steps to give you a foundation for creating a culture that encourages the employee engagement your organization needs.
