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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
With ‘only 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)
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!
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.
