Let's start with the bad news: The majority of employees worldwide is not engaged (53%) or actively disengaged (13%) at work. This means that they aren't psychologically committed to their jobs, nor are they likely to be making a positive contribution to the company they work for. About half of the employees worldwide report to be unhappy at work, causing them to be unproductive and liable to spread negativity to coworkers (Gallup worldwide survey, 2018). 

The good news:  There's lots of room for improvement! The current situation offers opportunities to improve Employee Satisfaction, Productivity and ultimately Business Outcomes.

  • Where to start? Well, it starts with acknowledging that employees are a company's biggest asset!

  • What's next? Follow through by implementing Employee Wellbeing, Professional Coaching, and Staff Training & Development as a priority in your organization!

Investing in the People Factor in the workplace leads to happier employees, who:

  • Are more engaged.

  • Are more motivated.

  • Experience higher levels of job satisfaction.

  • Communicate more effectively.

  • Are more innovative.

  • Perform better under stress.

  • Give better customer service.

  • Play more effective roles in teams.

  • Are better leaders.

 

Neuroscience explains this phenomenon: The brain works better when we experience positive emotions. We tend to be more creative and better at solving problems. Research also shows that we tend to be more effective collaborators in working towards a common goal.

 

What this means for your organization (WIIFM - What's In It For Me?):  

 

  • Improved individual performance.

  • Increased overall productivity.

  • Lower staff turnover (and thus higher retention of talent and lower costs for recruiting and training new staff).

  • Lower absenteeism (higher levels of wellbeing are are associated with better health, both physically and mentally).

It's like one of those ripple effects happening:

 

Invest in your employees, unlocking their potential, help them be the best they can be in their job, create a positive work culture around that, and see how that positively impacts how they perform in their jobs. 

To summarize: Improving Employee Wellbeing results in improved Performance and Success in the Workplace!

Conclusionacknowledging the importance of the People Factor in business by implementing Employee Wellbeing, Professional Coaching, and Staff Training & Development as a priority in your organization has measurable returns on your investment.
