We talk about motivation and engagement a great deal here on the Bud to Boss blog because it is critically important. Employee disengagement leads to low productivity and poor performance, and can seriously hurt the bottom line. As this Quill infographic shows, disengaged employees cost the U.S. $450-550 billion dollars annually, according to Gallup.
Take a look at the data, paying special attention to the following:
- The gaps in how employees perceived the recognition and engagement programs within their companies versus how businesses and their leaders perceive the job they’re doing. Hint: They don’t think you’re doing it as often as you think you are.
- The role leaders play. Get this: 70% of your employees’ engagement has to do with your ability to lead.
