Employee engagement isn’t just another buzzword, it’s the key to your success as a profitable enterprise.
According to Gallup’s State of the American Workplace, 70% of U.S. workers report not being engaged at work. Gallup estimates that actively disengaged employees cost the U.S. economy between $450 billion and $550 billion in lost productivity annually.
In an article in its quarterly journal, “Why frontline workers are disengaged,” McKinsey & Company recently wrote that one reason for this lack of engagement may be that senior managers are more positive about the organization’s ability to motivate employees than are frontline workers. McKinsey data shows “intrinsically motivated” employees are 32% more committed to and 46% more satisfied with their jobs, suffer significantly less burnout than other employees, and perform 16% better.
But how do you get employees to ignite the kind of motivation within themselves that makes them want to go the extra mile for your company, whether to resolve customer issues or come up with an innovative way to accomplish something that’s always been rote?
Ideas abound. CEOs hold town halls and try to lead by example. Senior managers preach teamwork and talk about corporate culture and profitability. Financial and performance goals are set, compensation raised, bonuses given, yet to still too many employees, it’s just a job.
The answer may be this simple: A recurring corporate chair massage program is a low-cost, highly-valued employee benefit that has real potential to create impassioned, not just engaged employees – to change your company’s culture: it improves health while addressing diminished productivity resulting from job stress, fatigue and uninspired problem-solving. It’s even shown to increase a sense of belonging.
That’s what you want isn’t it – a company where everyone feels like they belong and works together for the benefit of the customer and the company?
The result: a more agile organization whose employees are more able to positively, productively and cost-effectively respond to each other, to customers and to environmental changes. Plus, less money spent on addressing chronic illnesses, injuries and absenteeism!
