“To win in the marketplace you must first win in the workplace”- Doug Conant
This quote is the cornerstone to a successful business.
In the heat of a fast growing economy, as leaders, we are forced to change and grow with the times and remain competitive in our industry. This means staying one step ahead of our competitors. We spend endless hours thinking outside of the box, innovating, and creating.
We’ve built a team of employees because we can’t do it on our own. So, what are our employees doing? Are they connected to the strategy of the company? Does their work reflect their commitment and loyalty? If your answer is “no”, or “I don’t know”, there is a disconnect between your workplace and your marketplace.
It’s no secret that employees who are not engaged in their work are not giving you their best and are not good for your bottom line. But, let’s face it, you depend your team to make your vision a reality. So how can you get your team on board and crush the competition? You must first win in the workplace.
It’s time to get focused on employee engagement. And you are not the only one! In 2014 only 65.9% of employees were engaged in their jobs, the lowest point since 2006. I’ve done some homework for you to make your research easier.
