Use Strengths To See 6x Employee Engagement

If your employees could be 6x more engaged and be 3x more likely to have a good quality of life, you'd take it, right? That's what Donald Clifton, inventor of Gallup's StrengthsFinder assessment, found in his research on using your natural talents at work. Those who use their strengths daily feel 6x more engaged than those who don't.

87% Of Employees Don't Dig Their Work

Only 13% of employees worldwide are fully engaged on the job (source: Gallup). To make this more disappointing, there's a well-established connection between engagement and: customer satisfaction, profitability, productivity, employee turnover, absenteeism, theft, safety, and quality. It's time to get this in order!

Only 38% Of Companies Meet Development Needs

According to a Blessing White study, only 38% of employees believe that their employer's approach to career development meets their needs. Help team members own their careers so they're not waiting on you for promotions and ideas for what to do next. When you invest in their natural talents, their strengths benefit both parties.
