I’m sure you’ve seen these employee engagement statistics before… and they are staggering.
Nearly 2 out of 3 employees are not committed to the goals of the organizations they work for. If we think in terms of a sports team that means the majority of the players don’t care if the team wins or loses. Even more concerning is the idea that one or more team members actually wants the team to lose, and will work to help make that happen. That’s not a team I would want to be a part of!
Organizations that understand the importance of culture and employee engagement see loads of rewards in terms of profitability, retention, attraction, productivity, and so much more. To go back to our original sports analogy; they are more likely to win the game!
After all, if we’re going to play shouldn’t we play to win?
