We go through life with so many false notions. Many of these false notions swirl around the work environment, fed by stress, not enough time and overall lack of self care. They impact our ability to truly connect with our work and quickly we are caught up in the politics of it all. A path that starts out so promising slowly evolves into a path towards utter drudgery.
Over the last decade, HR has focused on this concept of maximizing employee engagement. As practitioners, we began to survey, analyze and incorporate morale boosters. All efforts, with only a few companies able to claim the title of exception, have generated a groundbreaking change of zilch. The statistics remain the same, 63% of the workforce worldwide are disengaged. To add to the statistic we now are measuring and tracking the 24% that are “actively disengaged.” These individuals are a cautionary tale to our organizations because they have a level of disengagement that is contagious and they are more than happy to share this germ.
Regardless, the question persists, how do we engage employees? We know that happy, engaged employees are 12% more productive and having an engaged workforce can increase operating income by 33%. We want to engage them, but how? The problem is we are treating “them” as a “they”.
We must recognize the people that populate our organizations and see them as the core they are to our potential greatness.
We must provide a method to dispel these false notions each individual carries. Choosing not to provide a mechanism to expose these notions, causes the devastating result of limiting potential.
The Engagement RechARTed workshop was created to serve as a mechanism to dispel false notions individuals carry in regards to their workplaces, positions and overall professional paths.
