Many organizations are able to see the opportunity that waits in the wings by turning disgruntled and disengaged workers from a liability to a growing asset for their organization.
Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
Research findings by the Harvard Business Review have found that employees who feel that they are thriving in the workplace demonstrated 16% better overall performance (as reported by their managers) and 125% less burnout (self-reported) than their peers. They were 32% more committed to the organization and 46% more satisfied with their jobs. They also missed much less work and reported significantly fewer doctor visits, which meant health care savings and less lost time for the company. Moreover, a recent survey by the American Psychological Association shows that 48% of employees do not feel valued at work. Essentially, people feel underappreciated, disrespected and disengaged.
These sobering workplace statistics are interpreted as a dearth of bad news for some organizations that are dealing with strapped budgets, a continuing tight economy and lagging sales. However, many more organizations are able to see the opportunity that waits in the wings by turning disgruntled and disengaged workers from a liability to a growing asset for their organization.
