Why bother with programs that get employees more engaged? After all, isn’t it just a lot of babble?
Some interesting research indicates that it’s not babble at all.
- Engaged employees at Molson Coors were five time less likely to have a safety incident, and seven times less likely to have a lost-time safety incident.
- Engaged employees in the U.K. take an average of 2.69 sick days per year compared to the disengaged who take 6.19.
- A study of 89 companies compared top quartile and bottom engagement and found those in top quartile had 2.6 higher earnings per share than those in the bottom quartile.
- Companies listed on Fortune Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work for in America” list have produce 2.3% to 3.8% higher stock returns every year.
Creating a workplace that gets employees engaged pays huge dividends.
