Globalisation and the distributed workforce are creating immense challenges
In the past, employees worked with a team of people in an office. Today they connect with each other via email, chat, and conference calls. Impersonal, fragmented communications between workers in multiple locations lead to disengaged employees and ineffective outcomes.
Employee engagement in the US is only at 34%. With nearly 7 out of 10 workers not performing at their full potential, businesses have a critical need to invest in tools to better understand whether their employees are happy, have a sense of purpose, and are fully invested in their organisation’s mission and culture.
Research shows that organisations with high employee engagement outperform those with low engagement by over 200%. Employee engagement and wellness, viewed in the past as the responsibility of the HR department, are becoming core to business strategy.
