HUGE OPPORTUNITY: INCREASE EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT



In Fast Company of September 2011 there were some shocking statistics about the (dis)engagement of the workforce.


United States
Japan
France
Germany
Engaged
29%
3%
12%
17%
Disengaged
6%
16%
12%
8%


While disengaged workers are not productive at all and harming your organization, the huge opportunity is to raise the level of engagement of all other employees.
An engaged employee is more productive, creative, loyal, resilient and happy.

An increase in employee engagement has a direct (positive) influence on the bottom line. There are many actions, which you can take to increase employee engagement.
One of the most important ones is to start listening to your employees. And I mean real non-judgemental listening. It is key to plan an hour for that every two weeks. In that way the employee feels values and taken seriously and the manager can learn what is happening out there.

Do you have a schedule to listen to your employees?
