Maintaining an engaged, purpose-filled, value-driven workforce remains the most important factor in attaining business goals and guaranteeing the success of an organization. Yet in 2016 engaged workers constituted only around 33% percent of the total workforce (Gallup), with numbers remaining practically stagnant for the past 5 years. Furthermore, even with 67% of the workforce being classified as “not engaged” or “actively disengaged”, costing the bottom line dearly - for every $10,000 spent on staff, $3,400 is lost to lack of engagement - a majority of organizations still lack a comprehensive and directed employee engagement and retention strategy.
An enriching workplace experience is central to effective workforce management. Indeed, improved employee experience is directly related to increasing levels of engagement and the key outcomes that follow, as IBM and Globoforce showed in their first ever wide-ranging, systemic analysis on the subject – The Employee Experience Index of 2016. As the battle for talent rages on, it has become a universal imperative to make sure employees are brand advocates that believe in the company’s mission, purpose and values, and are positioned in the right roles and environment to enable their success.
