Results of Employee Engagement Study Leads Dale Carnegie Training to Offer Solutions
Nancy Covert, President of Dale Carnegie Training of Birmingham, AL, recently appeared on the Talk of Alabama morning show. The Talk of Alabama morning show airs on local ABC affiliate ABC 33/40 and is hosted by Ebony Hall. In her segment, Covert discusses the results of a recent employee engagement research study and what it means for businesses. Her advice and solutions focus on why people are not engaged, as well as the cost of having disengaged employees, which is a staggering $11 billion dollars each year in the United States alone. This figure is mainly due to turnover, and Dale Carnegie Training is committed to understanding the true reasons behind lack of engagement, along with providing solutions to keep employees in an organization.
“I'm excited and proud to bring such an important topic to the ABC 33/40 viewing audience,” says Nancy, “The Birmingham business community has been very receptive as we've told the story of our employee engagement research findings.” Covert mentions that the biggest area of disengagement typically falls with the manager and employee’s relationship. If this relationship is not strong, the employee is 71% more likely to leave the organization.
