The Great Engagement: A call to action to increase output and innovation

The Great Engagement is a call to action to increase output and innovation.

According to the Cicero Group, research shows that employees receiving strong performance recognition are much more likely to be highly engaged at their job. They are also more likely to perform at their maximum output and develop innovative ways to improve their company.

Do you make it a practice to regularly recognize your employees’ performance?

Do you know one of the reasons employees leave is that employees don’t feel valued by their manager?

If you’re not regularly recognizing your employees, you may be missing out on your employees using their key strengths to contribute their best efforts.

Tips to Take Action

  • Take the time to personally get to know your employees and find out how they prefer to be acknowledged.
  • Prepare key messages for each employee that you can customize and deliver as the opportunity emerges. You can also create the opportunity to share your message!
  • Create accountability for yourself by setting a ‘deliver by’ date.
  • Then acknowledge your employees often!

Support your employees to thrive in their zone of genius

“It goes without saying that no company, small or large, can win over the long run without energized employees who believe in the mission and understand how to achieve it.” – Jack Welch, former CEO of GE

Do you help your employees understand how important their work is to the business success?

If not, you may be missing out on your employees’ best efforts.

It is energizing to know when your natural abilities contribute to achieving a mission. This brings purpose to the work. Using natural abilities is the ‘zone of genius’ where employees excel!

Take Action – To help your employees thrive in their zone of genius, share how their talents and work contribute to the organization’s mission.

The Great Engagement’s Urgent Call to Organizations

The Great Engagement urgently calls organizations to actively engage their employees.

Do you know how to actively engage with your employees to have the most positive impact?

Please note, saying “be thankful you have a job!” is not an effective way to engage your staff even though an “attitude of gratitude” is powerful. If this is your approach then don’t be surprised if you are hosting more good-bye parties than welcome parties.

Employees want more than a paycheque.

The three most common reasons Gallup found employees to be disengaged at work were:

  • Not seeing opportunities for development
  • Not feeling connected to the company’s purpose
  • Not having strong relationships at work

Which one of these apply to your organization?

Which one will you strengthen to increase engagement with your employees?

What actions are you going to take to actively engage your employees?

The Great Engagement is an urgent call to action for businesses to retain and attract great employees.

While there is no quick fix, there are simple leadership practices that can produce immediate improvements in engagement.

What are the costs of not actively engaging your employees?

What are the costs of not actively engaging your employees?

The Management Journal’s semi-annual Employee Engagement Index reports that 60% of employees are not engaged, and 15% are actively disengaged at work and only 25% are actively engaged.

According to Forbes, the costs of a disengaged employee is equivalent to 34% of their annual salary, or $3,400 for every $10,000 of income.

If we applied this to the average Canadian salary of $55,800 a year, the costs of a single disengaged employee to the business is going to be $18,972 annually.

Let’s apply this to an entire organization.

Let’s say you lead an organization of 100 people.

If we use the Employee Engagement Index which states only 25% of employees are actively engaged, then 75 employees are disengaged at your organization.

If we use the average salary of those employees as $55,800 then this employee disengagement is costing your organization annually:  $1,422,900 ($18,972 X 75 people.)

This example demonstrates that there are concrete costs due to employee disengagement.

Are you surprised by the magnitude of this cost? What is the actual cost to your organization? Are you OK with the return on this investment?

The Great Engagement is an urgent call to action for businesses to retain and  attract great employees. It’s your choice: you will either have the cost of disengagement or invest in engaging your employees.

While there is no quick fix, there are simple leadership practices that can produce immediate improvements in engagement.
