Employee Engagement Programs
Engaged Employees Go the Extra Mile
ENGAGED EMPLOYEES ARE up to 28% more productive (Conference Board), but only 29% of employees are engaged (Gallup). How much effort is being left on the table in your organization from unengaged and disengaged employees?
Unlock the engagement edge, and the reward in discretionary effort can make a huge difference in profits and performance, as employees go the extra mile. Firms with the highest engagement have 3.9 times the shareholder return. Gallup estimates the cost from lost productivity due to disengagement at $300 billion a year.
Building and sustaining employee engagement not only boosts productivity, but also stress management and work-life balance. Researchers report that engagement and its key dimensions—dedication, vigor, and absorption—are the opposite of burnout.
Build Trust and Morale
EMPLOYEES ARE MORE DEDICATED when they feel a valued part of a shared process. They are more motivated when they are given the support to get around obstacles and more committed to their work when they are recognized for their competence.
Key to the satisfaction that drives extra effort is a sense of growth and progress. Harvard's Teresa Amabile and researcher Steven Kramer found that progress in meaningful work is the primary employee motivator, and that 95% of managers don't know it.
Our employee engagement program brings progress, trust, and value to your teams through the science of human motivation and gratification. Thanks to the research, we know exactly what employees need to feel satisfied.
The program gives your organization the tools to satisfy your employees' core needs, such as autonomy and competence. A host of science and case studies show that supporting core needs activates the main drivers of engagement—trust in leadership, acknowledging achievement, two-way communication, career development, and shared decision-making.
Training to Unlock Extra Effort
WE HELP YOUR ORGANIZATION TAP in to the inner aspirations that drive self-initiative. It turns out that full engagement doesn't come from the usual external rewards, from financial incentives or other traditional carrots. The science shows that it comes from activating the most potent motivation on the planet—intrinsic motivation—and the self-propelled excellence that comes with it.
Our employee engagement program unleashes extra effort through a system that transforms workplace behavior and engagement. Key elements of the program include:
• A rationale for why tasks are being done
• Less controlling structures, more informational ones
• Rewards as appreciation, not motivation
• Helping employees set challenging goals and providing latitude to achieve them
• Encouraging more self-responsibility and assessment
• Feedback that promotes competence
• Supporting employee development and well-being
• Involvement in decision-making and ability to contribute
• Facilitating purpose through intrinsic motivation
