Zinger Friday Factoid
Hewitt reported a few years back, ” the analysis found that organizations with high engagement are 78 percent more productive and 40 percent more profitable than those organizations with low levels of engagement. Those with disengaged employees had an average profit loss of $8,000 to $10,000 profit each year for each disengaged employee.
Employee engagement is so much more than a free lunch or a happy YouTube recruiting dance. It is big business and big in business when disengagement results in a profit loss of up to $10,000 for each disengaged employee. We must be mindful of our numbers and not let disengaged employees become numb to their impact. If you are a manager know that it may be well worth your effort and time to work at transforming a disengaged employee into an engaged employee.
