At a recent business luncheon, a CEO was asked how many people work in his company: “About half of them,” he responded.
Engaged employees are enthusiastic about their work, dedicated to the success of the company and willing to go the extra mile to ensure it succeeds. They can take a company from good to great.On the flip side, 50.8% of our employees are disengaged – putting in their time and doing the minimum required. The other remaining 17.2% are actively disengaged, busily working against our businesses every day.
Studies show that direct interaction from leadership, recognition for accomplishments, strong bonds between coworkers, a sense of purpose and a sense of autonomy all contribute to improved engagement. Here are some facts to support these claims:
- Money doesn’t matter. Nearly 60% of employees say “giving recognition” is the #1 way to improve engagement.
- Companies that focus on building employee strengths over correcting weaknesses have more than 2X normal engagement.
- Employees are 50% more likely to be engaged if they have regular meetings with their boss.
- According to Jack Welch, good business leaders create a vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion. When employees share the vision of the company and its purpose, they are more engaged.
So how about having fewer sick days, accidents, errors, conflicts and grievances – while watching productivity and retention go up? Having passionate people won’t just improve your bottom line, it will give you a better, more enjoyable place to work, which will literally make your life better.
