Life today really is busier and more demanding that it has ever, whilst managing deadlines, targets and customer service, its easy to forget about taking care of and exciting your employees!
But guess what… insufficient and inconsistent engagement programmes result in disengaged teams and the loss of good people. Research shows that disengaged employees are over twice as likely to leave an organisation…. not rocket science huh?
And according to Gallup.com engaged workers are 21% more productive than their disengaged counterparts, so it really does make good business sense to get your engagement programme right.
Then lets talk about stress… we all lead busier lives than ever, and with long hours at work piling on top of hectic family lives, housework, keeping fit, eating right and somehow finding a few hours in between to actually sleep — it’s no wonder that 44% of people suffer from stress according to Bupa.
Not only is this problem worrying when it comes to our mental health, but it’s actively bad for business!
Some statistics from the Labour Force Survey:
11.7 million days were lost in 2015/16 due to stress. This is an average of 23.9 days lost per case.
In 2015/16 stress accounted for 37% of all work related ill health cases and 45% of all working days lost due to ill health.
