Reality Check

It's not just them! It's all of us! 

This reality check is the next best thing to looking in the mirror. Unless you take a long, hard look, you can easily be fooled into believing that it’s them, not me.

Global research shows pervasive tension occurs within individuals at all levels throughout the organization.

When tension is ignored, it denies organizations billions in unrealized revenues, resulting in massive employee dis-engagement and unreached productivity, staff health issues, and absenteeism.

Engaged employees​

A recent Gallup Report* Only 14 per cent of employees are ‘engaged’ in their jobs. Employees who work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company. They drive innovation and move the organization forward.

Dis-engaged employees

An overwhelming 71 per cent are dis-engaged.’ These employees are essentially ‘checked out.’ They’re sleepwalking through their workday, putting time – but not energy or passion into their work.

Actively dis-engaged employees

As many as 15 per cent are actively dis-engaged.’ These employees aren’t just unhappy at work; they’re busy acting out their unhappiness. Every day, these workers undermine what their engaged co-workers accomplish.

Those in leadership positions fared even worse

Withonly one in five leaders engaged in the jobs.’ That is, 80 per cent of key decision-makers across the organization are also essentially ‘checked out.’ (*State of the Global Workplace Gallup Report 2017)

86 percent of your organization is struggling and the cost is...

Also, according to Gallup, ‘dis-engaged employees’ have 37% higher absenteeism, 18% lower productivity, and 15% lower profitability. When that translates into dollars, you’re looking at the cost of 34% of a ‘dis-engaged employee’s’ annual salary, or $3,400 for every $10,000 they make. That is a lot of money!

A reality check for stakeholders & leadership

Are Stakeholders just as Dis-engaged?

The Gallup Reports portray a bleak scenario for stakeholders.

On every Monday morning, your investment compensates employees at all levels of the organization with the equivalent of a full fuel tank, but they only receive around 14% of the fuel.

This situation seriously limits your vision for this investment and potential new growth opportunities, denying you a healthy return on investment.

Remember: Your investment will continue to shrink or grow depending on the overall level of employee engagement.
