What’s it all about?
Only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged at work, according to Gallup’s recent, 142-country study on the State of the Global Workplace. This equals one in eight workers — are mentally and emotionally committed to their jobs, and likely to be making positive contributions to their organizations.
63% of employees worldwide are “not engaged,” meaning they lack motivation and are less likely to invest optional effort in company goals or outcomes. This is critical, as almost any business metric is directly impacted by employee engagement (turnover, absenteeism, productivity, profitability, quality/safety incidents, customer service, the list goes on…).
The top two reasons people leave their jobs:
1. The relationship they have with their manager.
2. The relationship they have with their peers.
Ultimately, it’s the relationships someone has at work that most directly impacts their level of engagement. When a leader can take an hour a month to connect with their team around issues beyond the transactional nature of daily work, they help their team feel heard, understood, and appreciated.
