According to Gallup, only 27% of employees worldwide are engaged, ready and willing to do their best. The costs of this situation are staggering in terms of lost productivity and the cost of replacing employees, to the tune of over 350 billion dollars a year in the US.
How to engage and mobilize is a top frustration
It shows up in your business as missed deadlines, lack of accountability, finger pointing and drama in the workplace. Aren’t you tired of spending so much time dealing with the fallout that comes from employees that are not as committed and motivated as you are?
The answer might be simpler than you think
There are many simple strategies to engage and mobilize employees. They cost almost nothing to implement, can be put into place immediately, and have huge impact.
For instance, one opportunity that many leaders have — even at the C-level — is to give more frequent, informal feedback about how each employee is doing. That way, everyone in an organization knows what is expected of them and how they can continue to grow, learn and improve.
