(cue dramatic music)
85% of employees are actively disengaged at work
45% of employees leave their job because of a ‘bad boss’
Engaged businesses see 41% lower absenteeism and 17% higher productivity
This means the disengaged employees …
- Do the bare minimum to get paid (and will leave your company in a heartbeat)
- Don’t have any connection with their colleagues (hello, conflict)
- Save their best ideas for a job they’ll care about (goodbye, innovation)
…which explains the €20 billion a year cost to the European economy for work-related stress.
And yet… companies that actively engage their people are 21% more profitable.
Engagement? It comes down to a sense of identity, purpose and belonging
So when your people look for things like mission and identity, and want to integrate work and life – how do you give them that?
The answer: Cultivate Community
Growing up, you have a community in your family, school, college, sports team or book club.
But when you start working… you have a job.
A community at work involves a clear direction, emotional connection in the team, meaningful work, humour and fun and more importantly… a workplace you look forward to being a part of every day.
And it makes sense:
Because teams with a sense of belonging (i.e. community) show 21% greater profitability, 41% reduction in absenteeism, and 59% less turnover.
So the question is, how do you build a team with a strong sense of community, one that is dedicated to your organisation and has a mission to stand behind?
