Only 30% of employees are engaged with the work they’re doing, and many contribute only the bare minimum required to keep their jobs. That’s a terrible ROI. What can we do to change a work environment so that employees actually want to be there and are inspired to put forth their best efforts?
Why Employee Engagement is Important
EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT IS THE KEY and it is built on a foundation of equality and diversity within leadership ranks. That’s because employees are more likely to identify with and interact with those they can relate to, and that leads to them to caring more about their contributions or to put it bluntly “giving a shit.”
We need to talk about why employee engagement is important to companies, regardless of their size. Here is a short video I recorded where I discussed the importance of employee engagement. Listen to it below.
Take a look at your leadership team
Do you see the same diversity that is represented by the rest of your employees? Or, like in most organizations are your leaders mostly white men?
With equality and diversity evident at all levels, engagement rates improve dramatically, leading to a better work environment and bigger profits.
