Employee Engagement Consulting
Did You Know That Only 13% of Employees Worldwide Are Fully Engaged At Work?
Sad isn't it?
If you're reading this and you live in the US, you're among an average of 30% engagement. That's better than 13%, yet it's still disturbing to think that 70% of workers are not reaching their full potential. And when this problem doesn't stop with the employee. It has serious implications for companies.
What are the problems that come with lack of engagement?
- Gallup estimates that actively disengaged employees cost the U.S. between $450 billion and $550 billion each year in lost productivity.
- Gallup data suggests that every disengaged employee costs an organization approximately $3,400 for every $10,000 of salary.
- Besides that, employees cite toxic work cultures, dread of the office, and an unwillingness to go beyond what they have to do to get by.
So what can you do about it?
The first step is to know where you are so you know where to focus your energy. We recommend doing an annual Employee Engagement Survey with all of your employees.
Don't waste time and money by asking a giant slug of questions that don't bring results. Get the pulse of your workforce with a simple 5 minute survey, backed by data points gathered from over 10 million participants. These 12 questions map directly to your most important business outcomes. Before landing on the final 12, Gallup studied answers from over a million interviews in dozens of industries and geographies. These 12 questions are most highly correlated with the productive motivations of employees. In other words, to your business outcomes. Lead Through Strengths is proud to align itself with Gallup. As a Certified Strengths Coach, we offer several tools such as the Employee Engagement survey and the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment.
So what are some of those business outcomes, you ask?
Have you been focusing your effort only on things like market forces, new product launches, or automation to reduce costs? Maybe you've done a travel freeze or a hiring freeze to manage expenses. Maybe you hired more sales people for top line growth or reduced your workforce to preserve profitability.
Those steps can be important. Yet the most commonly ignored factor is employee engagement. Increased engagement is by no means a single source of success, yet it's undeniable as a crucial corporate imperative. By using an annual employee engagement survey, you'll also be able to quantify the benefits of your people-initiatives. No more enigma.
