Why is looking after your employees so important?

“Over 70% of US employees are disengaged, costing businesses up to $550 billion in lost productivity annually. Globally, those numbers climb even higher. That may seem a bit doom and gloom, but it’s actually not, which is exactly why it’s such an exciting time for the employee engagement and wellbeing industry.

Gone are the days when companies viewed employee engagement and wellbeing programs as ‘nice to do,’ yielding ‘soft’ benefits. Companies with high engagement scores perform better than their counterparts in key operational areas like productivity, absenteeism, turnover, safety and quality incidents, shrinkage, customer metrics, and profitability.”
